NMC progress in key roles but not with revalidation

Written by: | Published:

The Health Select Committee is ‘optimistic' the NMC is concentrating on its core statutory roles and has welcomed its progress on its fitness to practise caseload.

The council is also committed to developing a model of nurse revalidation by 2015, which will be proportionate, risk-based and will not increase the registration fee; it has recently appointed a director to drive revalidation forward.

However, the health select committee expressed disappointment with the NMC's progress in this area.

Commenting, NMC chief executive Jackie Smith said: ‘We do not underestimate the challenges ahead.'
