With every passing day, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is losing the trust of patients. A review being carried out by the Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE) has revealed that 4,500 nurses and midwives are facing one or the other allegation.
Cases have filed and hearings are in continuation with 15 hearings a day and by September, the number will rise to 18. The Nursing and Midwifery Council has accepted its mistake and has also apologized.
Chief of CHRE Harry Cayton said that they have been investigation only those cases, which have some chance to work again. Depending on the nature of the complaint and complexities involved, they are giving the fitness-to-practice green signal to nurses and other involved in the cases.
"The regulator must finally leave its troubled past behind. New leaders must be appointed who are competent, credible and capable of addressing its very serious organizational problems", said Cayton.
Jackie Smith, who is the interim chief of the regulating committee, was of the view that there are many loopholes in the system and the report has made them aware about the shortcomings. They will try to correct themselves, as they committed to provide quality services to people.
