The Nursing and Midwifery Council are an organisation which regulates nurses and midwives in the United Kingdom. They set standards, hold a register, quality assure education and investigate complaints.
We review the performance of the Nursing and Midwifery Council each year. We give our report to Parliament and publish our report on our website. We also review every decision made by the regulator's final fitness to practise panels.We include recent cases on this page. See more cases.
