NMC prioritises efficient and effective regulation
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has published its corporate plan 2013 – 2016 and in it commits to six priorities designed to help it deliver efficient and effective regulation.
The plan sets out key priorities for the next three years including:
- Continuing improvement to fitness to practise processes;
- Achieving financial stability;
- Ongoing review of registration policies and processes;
- Implementing a model for ensuring that nurses and midwives continue to be fit to practise;
- Delivering a robust engagement strategy; and
- Continuing to improve and implement new NMC systems and processes.
NMC Chief Executive and Registrar, Jackie Smith said:
“Our Corporate Plan 2013 – 2016 sets out what we would like to achieve over the next three years and it provides a benchmark by which our success will be measured.
“The Corporate Plan was developed against the backdrop of two major events; the strategic review carried out by the Professional Standards Authority (formally the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence) and the publication of the Francis Inquiry. The Corporate Plan 2013 – 2016 ensures that we remain focused on our role and deliver our core statutory functions to a high standard, whilst demonstrating our commitment to improving the NMC and placing it at the heart of public protection.”
