NMC forced to withdraw sanction guide23rd January 2012
The Nursing and Midwifery Council has placed a delay on its sanctions guidance because of protests from the Royal College of Nursing.
The RCN objected to the fact that the NMC was going to go ahead with the sanctions without a consultation, said it would be "unlawful" and threatened legal action unless the NMC withdrew the new guidance. "This was an excellent result for the legal team and wider RCN," said Jonathan Green, a Senior Legal Officer at the RCN. "By taking this action, we were able to ensure fair treatment and to stand up for the RCN members who are answerable to the NMC."
