NMC Defence Barristers secure a quick resolution for nurse who recently accepted a police caution.

“I took the service of Catherine Stock to represent me with regards to my case with NMC Fitness to Practice. We were still on the process of gathering information, evidence, statements and referrals to best defend my case, but the NMC dropped my case already. it took only two and a half months for them to come up with a decision considering that they said it will take nine months to a year or even more before they can come up with any decision. I thought I’m going to lose my nursing career!


Catherine was very professional and thorough with her legal advice with my case. I highly recommend such calibre to anyone experiencing similar problems such as I had. A heartfelt gratitude goes to Catherine Stock and the whole of Kings View Chambers!”
