NMC Defence Barristers have been successful with a first-time restoration application.  

The nurse was taken off the register in 2014 for numerous allegations of dishonesty. 

“I was at a very low point regarding trying to return to my nursing career after some years of pretty much despairing Mrs Stock explained clearly what my options were and the best course of action to take. She handles my case with the utmost professionalism and I felt at ease all the way through the process.

“I am most grateful for her help and support has made a massive difference to my future. Being able to resume my nursing career meant so much to me and this wouldn’t of been possible without Mrs Stock!

“I would recommend to anyone who maybe in a similar situation to contact Catherine Stock as you will not be disappointed with her honesty, openness & professionalism at all times.” 

Catherine Stock, joint head of chambers said in relation to this case: “We believe if you are considering an application for restoration you must prepare about 6-12 months in advance. Remember restoration is not an automatic process and the burden of proof is on the registrant to demonstrate that they are no longer impaired and fit to practise as a nurse.”
