ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) failure to meet key performance standards based on the result of a self-assessment. According to the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE), NMC failed on about 12 percent of its statutory standards. The CHRE's findings show that NMC failed on the area of fitness-to-practise cases' case management system and others. NMC's ministerial concerns are also presented along with statements from CHRE and NMC spokespersons.
