NHS Employers comments on the Nursing and Midwifery Council's revalidation for nurses and midwives
Commenting on the Nursing and Midwifery Council's revalidation announcement, Dean Royles, chief executive of NHS Employers organisation said: "The revalidation of doctors effectively fired the starting pistol for the NMC Council's decision today and is an important first step towards implementing revalidation for nurses and midwives.

"Although the model will be different from medical revalidation, there is obvious learning to be gained to ensure the roll out is successful. Having this form of world-beating approach to regulation is expensive and won't be easy. Employers will have concerns about implementation. Nurses and midwives work across all parts of the health and care system - the scale of the challenge in reaching the 670,000 registrants should not be underestimated.

"There is a huge amount of work to do to move to the formal consultation stage, including full impact assessments.  A decision in principle was the easy sprint - implementation will be the marathon.  

"We look forward to working with the NMC on engaging employers in the NHS."
