The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has announced the first group of organisations that will help test its new system of checks on fitness to practice for nurses and midwives, which is set to be introduced under revalidation from 31 December 2015.
The pilot sites will help the NMC further develop its revalidation model, guidance and forms before its wider implementation next year.
The organisations participating in the pilots are:
- Aneurin Bevan University Health Board
- Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
- Mersey Care NHS Trust
- NHS Tayside
- Public Health England
- Western Health and Social Care Trust.
Further pilot organisations, including those in primary care, social care, self-employed settings and the independent sector, will be announced by the NMC in due course. NHS Employers will therefore continue to work closely with the NMC to ensure the process meets the needs of the NHS across England.
More detailed information can be found on the NMC website, and further details will be published on our website and in our regular bulletins once more information is known.
