No further action for nurse in ‘incorrect entry’ case

Kings View Chambers secure no case to answer for nurse who made a mistake in their re-registration and revalidation.

Kings View Chambers secure no case to answer for nurse who made a mistake in their re-registration and revalidation.

In this case, a nurse made an entry error when completing their re-registration and revalidation with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).  The nurse had always accepted that in error the entry was incorrect.

The Investigating Committee were persuaded that the nurse was not acting dishonestly nor fraudulently. Despite the Panel’s findings the NMC still took the view that the entry should be removed, and the nurse should have to reapply. With Kings Views’ representation, we successfully argued against this, and the Panel took no action.

NMC defence barrister, Catherine Stock said:

“These cases are often difficult to prepare for any nurse or midwife as the legal test is a little complicated and as such it is vital to seek appropriate legal advice early on and from lawyers experienced not only in NMC hearings but also in these specific type of hearings.”

LL, the nurse said:

“Would highly recommend Catherine Stock, she represented me in a fitness to practice NMC case, professional, knowledgeable, and has the process perfectly planned for clients. Made an extremely stressful time easier with her wealth of experience.”
