New fitness to practice workshops

10 January 2019

The NMC is inviting nurses and midwives to a series of workshops on its new approach to fitness to practise.


The NMC wants to move away from a culture of blame when things go wrong towards a process that supports patient safety by creating a supportive environment for professionals to be open and learn.

The NMC would like to discuss how it can work with nurses and midwives to promote shared goals of patient safety, professionalism and accountability.

These events will be a chance for the NMC, trade unions, employers and other partners to have a conversation about what the new approach means in practice and how everyone can work together to make it a success. 

The workshops will be especially useful for officers or reps who deal with NMC referrals.

  •  The workshops will be taking place at various locations around the UK in February and March 2019. For more information, and to sign up, visit
