Can you help with NMC revalidation pilots?

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has announced the organisations that it will be partnering as it tests the system and processes underpinning revalidation.

Revalidation is an additional key tool in public protection, which will help the NMC as the regulator of nurses and midwives to check that the people on its register are up to date and fit to practise throughout their careers.

The pilot will help identify any ways in which the NMC should refine the model, guidance and forms, before its introduction at the end of 2015.

The organisations participating in the pilots are:

Aneurin Bevan University Health Board;

Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust;

Mersey Care NHS Trust;

NHS Tayside and local partners;

Public Health England;

Western Health;

Social Care Trust.

Do you work in a pilot site? If you’d like to help UNISON to monitor and oversee the pilot in your workplace, please contact your local branch and
