On 19th July 2018, the Royal College of Nursing hosted a training event entitled, “The Truth, the whole Truth & nothing but the Truth” which aimed to demystify proceedings in the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Ellen Shaw, Matthew Howarth and Anna Chestnutt presented a mock trial, based on a case where a nurse had been accused of sleeping on shift on various occasions. It was an interactive session, with breaks to explain the procedure to the audience. The presentation emulated the style, procedure and processes which can be seen at hearings in front of a Fitness to Practice Panel.
Ellen, Matthew and Anna have collective experience in a healthcare regulatory context, in both the General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council. To instruct these barristers, please contact the clerks on 0161 832 5701.
