NMC shows some improvements

11th November 2011

An audit has found that the Nursing and Midwifery Council is starting to make improvements but continues to have “areas of significant weaknesses” in its handling of fitness to practice cases.

The Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence noted there had been “some evidence of improvement” in the last year, particularly in identifying and prioritising serious cases but it has ongoing concerns. These include delays in referring cases for interim orders and in informing registrants of the outcome of these referrals, inconsistencies in record-keeping, inadequate risk assessment, insufficient information gathering and poor customer service.
