Join a virtual workshop hosted by the Nursing and Midwifery Council and share your experience.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the independent regulator for nurses and midwives in the UK, and nursing associates in England. Their vision is safe, effective and kind nursing and midwifery practice that improves everyone’s health and wellbeing.
More experienced nurses and midwives across the UK are taking on complex, expert roles known as ‘advanced practice’. People in the care of nurses and midwives taking on these roles often experience huge benefits. Their advanced knowledge and skill enable them to demonstrate advanced communication skills and make timely person-centred decisions. They have the freedom and authority to act in assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the people they care for.
The NMC is reviewing how they might regulate this type of role in the future, and they would love to hear from you.
An online workshop is being held on 11th December 2023 from 12pm to 1:30pm to hear the voices of those who use health and care services in Scotland and their experience of care provided by nursing and midwifery professionals – this may be professionals in advanced practice roles or nursing and midwifery staff in general. The NMC would like to hear from a wide and diverse range of people, and especially welcome the involvement of people from black and minority ethnic communities.
An involvement payment of £30 will be made to you (if you’re in receipt of any state benefits, please be aware that payment can affect your benefits. Please seek advice if you’re unsure).
To register your interest or to find out more, please contact AdvancedPractice@nmc-uk.org
