Honesty laws and HCA regulation would make NHS safer, say nurses

Comment

The Nobody | 20-Feb-2013 7:39 pm Yep, as long as they're on the register, regardless of position someone can be struck off for poor practice. A nurse director, nurse CEO, nurse teachers are still registered if they want to continue in that role. Eg a registered midwife who worked as a HCA was struck off a few days ago. It will be same for Chief Nurses if it was proven they were at fault. If they deregister, then they are no longer a registered nurse or midwife, and cannot practice or call her/himself as one. NMC will not have any jurisdiction over them. To practice without registration is not legal and other systems come into play.
