The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) oversees the regulation of nurses and midwives. All nurses and midwives must be registered with the NMC in order to practice. The NMC has the authority to impose sanctions on nurses and midwives who fail to uphold standards of professional or personal behaviour.
The NMC consulted on its guidance for Fitness to Practice panels on potential sanctions.
