Nursing and Midwifery Council – the nursing and midwifery regulator for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Their primary function is to protect the public. They set standards for nurses and midwives in the areas of education, training, conduct and performance in order to promote the delivery of high quality healthcare throughout their careers.

They state on the that their values are the following – to ‘be accountable, fair, learn and improve, be collaborative, be dynamic, to remember we are only as good as our people and to provide value for money’
Based on those values, they have a clear mission, which they state – ‘We exist to protect the public. We do this by making sure that only those who meet our requirements are allowed to practise as a nurse or midwife in the UK. We take action if concerns are raised about whether a nurse or midwife is fit to practise.’
During a career in nursing or midwifery, even with professionalism and good standards, health and care workers can find themselves facing nurses law issues with registration, they may have had a complaint made against them, face allegations about their ability to practise or be referred to Nursing and Midwifery Council for investigation.
