The Nursing and Midwifery Council has set out a series of regulatory and education “changes”, including the restarting of physical fitness to practise hearings, as the UK moves towards a “new normal”.
The proposed measures, to be reviewed by the NMC’s governing council next week, focus on enabling a more stable learning environment for nursing and midwifery students.
In addition, they include the restarting of those fitness to practise hearings that were previously paused due to the pandemic.
The NMC said the changes were designed to help support nursing and midwifery students and professionals as the UK “cautiously transitions to a new phase” in the coronavirus pandemic.
The regulator said it was embarking on a “gradual introduction” of changes to help the nursing and midwifery workforce and wider health and care systems during this period of transition.
