NMC issues new advice to non-regulated healthcare staff

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the UK's regulator for nurses and midwives, has issued new advice to reflect the changing dynamic of the provision of healthcare.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the UK's regulator for nurses and midwives, has issued new advice to reflect the changing dynamic of the provision of healthcare.

The document "NMC advice for delegation to non-regulated healthcare staff" publishes ten principles for nurses and midwives to follow when delegating to non-regulated healthcare staff.

The new NMC regulations replace the previous ones to keep up to date with the nature of enquiries being received by NMC professional advisors on this issue.

NMC professional adviser, Jan Goldsmith, stated: "During the past year, we have documented a sharp increase in the number of enquiries relating to delegation, specifically with regards to non-regulated healthcare staff.

"Delegation to non-regulated healthcare staff is an area of some concern for nurses and midwives and we have responded to this by making sure the advice they are given is up to date and relevant," added Goldsmith.

The revised advice is available on the NMC website on http://www.nmc-uk.org/aFrameDisplay.aspx?DocumentID=3076
