Call for judicial review of nurse vetting9th June 2010
The Royal College of Nursing is seeking a judicial review of the vetting and barring scheme on the grounds that it claims the process could breach the human rights of nurses and undermines their ability to respond to patients' needs.
The scheme was launched last October in a bid to prevent unsuitable people from working with children and vulnerable adults. When it is fully operational, all nurses, midwives, nursing students and healthcare assistants will have to register with the Independent Safeguarding Authority.
