Royal College of Nursing responds to Nursing & Midwifery Council 'Shaping the Future' consultation

Responding to the NMC consultation on the future of nursing and midwifery Dame Donna Kinnair, Chief Executive and General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing said:

“This is a welcome opportunity to shape the way the NMC regulates the nursing profession, and informs and challenges the health and care system. The potential sharing of data and intelligence alone is hugely important to help improve workforce planning and to identify possible risks to safe and effective patient care”

“It is abundantly clear that there needs to be clear accountability for workforce supply and planning, and a sustained commitment to long-term investment in the workforce. The NMC has an important role to play in working together with colleagues across the health and care sector to understand systemic issues impacting on public and patient safety and in identifying solutions.”
