Performance reviews are carried out throughout the year and the reports are published as and when each report is finalised. The schedule for 2018/19 gives deadlines for sharing your experience about each regulator and when their review will start. The deadline for the General Optical Council's next review is 20 September 2019 and the deadline for the Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland's next review is 4 October 2019 - so please get in touch if you would like to share your feedback.
Our most recent performance review published is for the Health and Care Professions Council. Find out how many of our Standards they have met - you can read the full report or see a summary in our snapshot.
Piloting the new Standards of Good Regulation
Following the two consultations we ran, our Board agreed the revised Standards in November 2018. We are now ready to pilot them. During the pilot phase, the current Standards will still be in use. The revised Standards of Good Regulation have been rationalised and reduced. The plan now is to pilot these Standards and introduce them for our 2019/20 performance review cycle. Find out more about the revised Standards and the pilot.

We have now published our lessons learned Review looking at how the NMC handled concerns about midwives' fitness to practise at Furness General Hospital. The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care asked us to carry out this review in May 2017. The terms of reference are available here.
