The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) are making a change to their rules that could impact on our Nurse, Midwife and Specialist Community Public Health Nurse (SCPHN) members who are registered with the NMC. It is important that they are made aware of this so they do not allow their registration to lapse and would be grateful if you could cascade the information (detailed below) as widely as possible through your networks
NMC registration rule change
From November 2015 if NMC registrants fail to submit their NMC registration on time they will be taken off the register immediately.
Readmission to the NMC register will take a minimum of between two to six weeks and it is illegal for them to practise in this time.
Registrants should visit www.nmc.org.uk or call to 0207 3339333 to check their annual payment dates and for information about the rule change.
