UK: independent experts appointed to review culture of NMC

The NMC have appointed Nazir Afzal OBE and Rise Associates to lead an independent review of their culture, as part of the NMC’s ‘commitment to learn and improve’.

The review arose after the NMC received concerns of racism, sexism and ‘a lack of freedom to speak up’.

Nazir and Rise have significant experience in helping underrepresented groups be heard, and have worked with other organisations to review and improve their cultures.

‘It is a great honour to be asked to undertake this important work,’ said Nazir. ‘Over the next four months, we intend to… do everything we can to help ensure every member of staff enjoys dignity at work, feels empowered to speak out and is able to act on complaints and put the health, safety and wellbeing of the public first.’

NMC chief executive and registrar Andrea Sutcliffe said: ’We’re here to protect the public, and to do that, every colleague at the NMC needs to feel valued and be supported to deliver our purpose effectively.’
