Regulator faces bullying claims

  • 1 Comment

An MP and NMC council members have raised concerns over claims of bullying and racism at the regulator.

Former nurse Jim Devine, now Labour MP for Livingstone, last week asked health minister Ben Bradshaw to meet with a group of NMC council members who had raised concerns about the structure of the body.

‘It appears to be very racist and to employ a bullying strategy,’ he told the House of Commons.

Speaking to NT later, Mr Devine said: ‘Concerns had been expressed about issues of performance and behaviours currently taking place within the NMC.’

In the middle of last year a number of council members also sent a letter to the Department of Health raising similar concerns, NT has learnt.

But in a statement the NMC said: ‘We simply do not recognise the organisation that Mr Devine describes.’

Read the full story in this week’s NT.

  • The NMC would say that.

    Nursing at all levels, from the university right up to the NMC has a culture of bitchiness, nastiness, and bullying.

    It sickens me.
