  • 1 Comment

The Nursing and Midwifery Council has launched a bid to recruit 50 additional nurses and midwives to sit on its fitness to practise panels.

In NMC cases, at least one of the panel members must be registered on the same part of the register as the nurse or midwife under investigation.

“We would like to recruit 50 members of the profession to help us meet this requirement,” said the regulator in a statement.

Panel members will be paid £310 for attending each full day of a case sitting and mandatory training is paid at a rate of £260 per day.

The NMC said potential candidates should be able “analyse a situation, draw a conclusion and make an evidence-based decision in the time available”.

In addition, they would be required to working as part of a panel, accepting collective responsibility for reaching a “high quality consensual decision”.

“We are particularly interested in receiving applications from midwives,” said the NMC statement, adding: “We are keen to attract candidates from all sections of the community, to make sure our panels represent the society we serve.”

More information on the role and how to apply are available from recruitment agency Harvey Nash.
