NMC role in the provision of Advice and Guidance

Back to all Motions

2016 Health Care Service Group Conference
18 December 2015

Conference welcomes the work carried out by the National Nursing Occupational Group through their ongoing engagement with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Conference is concerned that anecdotal evidence seems to be emerging that the NMC is no longer providing registered nurses with professional advice and guidance.

The role of the NMC is to regulate the profession of nursing within the UK and in the setting of standards and maintaining of standards, provision of advice and guidance has to be an important facet of ensuring that registrants comply with the code.

Conference calls on the Service Group Executive and the National Nursing Occupational Group to lobby the NMC to amend their practices to provide advice and support to registrants.
