Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)

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.

How we oversee the Nursing and Midwifery Council

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.

Lesson learned review

We have now published a statement and the Terms of Reference for the lessons learned review we will carry out. We have been asked to carry out the review at the request of the Secretary of State for Health. The NMC supported that decision and both the NMC and Department of Health have agreed the terms of reference for the review.
