NMC has launched a recruitment drive to find up to 150 diverse panel members to serve on its fitness to practise committees.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has recently launched a recruitment drive to find up to 150 diverse lay panel members and registrant panel members to serve on its fitness to practise committees.
The committee panels make decisions at fitness to practise hearings and meetings about whether a nurse, midwife, or nursing associate is fit to practise. Panel members are independent decision makers who work with the NMC as contractors for a minimum of 15 days per year. Panel members make a considerable difference to professionals and those who raise concerns with the NMC or attend hearings as witnesses.
The NMC are seeking applications from as broad a range of people as possible to ensure that the panel members are representative of the professions they regulate.
Details about the personal qualities and skills the NMC are looking for, role descriptions and how to apply are available on the NMC microsite (this link will take you away from our website).
The closing date for applications is Friday 9 April 2021.
