Dear candidate

Thank you for your interest in this role at the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Our independent panel members make decisions every day on whether a nurse or midwife should be subject to some form of restriction in their work in order to protect the public. The actions of our panel members make a significant difference to nurses and midwives as well as those who have made a complaint or are called as witnesses to our hearings.

We want to receive applications from as broad a range of people as possible to ensure that our panel members are representative of the professions we regulate.

To be a panel member you need to be able to make logical, fair and balanced decisions and be able to explain them in simple terms to the people who are affected. You’ll need to be able to work well as part of a team and be empathetic and adaptable to the needs of those around you.

We know you may have developed these skills in a number of different ways and we want to receive applications from people with a range of professional experiences.

We’re looking for registrant and lay panel members. You can watch the video below to hear from one of our panel members, who is a registered nurse.

If you’ve never considered a role such as this before, don’t let that stop you from applying. If you become a panel member, we’ll provide the training and support required to enable you to make a positive impact.

If you have the skills and experience we’re looking for, identify with our values and want to make a positive difference to public protection then we would welcome your application.  

Kind regards

Paul Johnson

Assistant Director, Adjudication, Nursing and Midwifery Council
