Nursing regulator NMC has made progress on CHRE report, says outgoing president

  • Comment

The outgoing president of the nursing regulator NMC has praised stakeholders for their support in working with the old council to deliver its action plan in response to recommendations in a report by the CHRE.

Jill Crawford told representatives of the RCN, RCM, UNISON, Unite/CPHVA, the four chief nursing officers of the UK and the Council of Deans that the NMC’s progress in the last four months had left it ready for a new Council to take over.

‘The support of our stakeholders has been crucial in enabling us to move forward and deliver on public protection, she said at a meeting earlier this month.

‘I feel I can say with confidence that the new Council will take office with clear governance arrangements in place, significant progress on fitness to practice and the support of our stakeholders.’

The action plan included a leaner governance structure, the setting up of an electronic case management system, which will go live in January, additional staff to tackle the hearings backlog under fitness to practice, more training for fitness to practice staff and strengthened relationships with stakeholders.
