No to proposed increase in fees for Nurses and Midwives

e-Petitions would like the Government to Review the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) with regard to the fees charged to registered nurses and midwives, and the processes through which those fees are decided.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recently discussed a further increase in registration fees for Nurses and Midwives from £100 to £120.

The fees were increased 2 years ago from 76 to 100 following a consultation that was overwhelmingly against the rise.

The NMC are, of course, obliged to consult before any further rise. However 96%+ of individuals voted against the rise last time.

The Health Committee in their report earlier that year said "We would urge the NMC to avoid further fee rises and to consider fee reductions for new entrants to the register."

Approximately 670,000+ Nurses and Midwives contribute £67+ Million annually to the NMC
Please sign the petition to encourage a review of the NMC and the charging of annual fees to Nurses and Midwives
