Nursing defence lawyers
Nursing defence lawyers
Nursing defence lawyers act in the defence of registered nurses and midwives who are facing allegations with the NMC. Following a complaint or an allegation form a patient or an employer, a registered nurse or midwife may a letter with the subject line “The NMC has received an allegation that your Fitness to Practise as a Registered Nurse is impaired”. If this has happened to you, don’t give in to the inevitable feelings of panic and anxiety.
People facing these allegations often report a sense of shame and embarrassment about such allegations and may be tempted to keep their struggles a closely guarded secret. Sadly acting in this way leads many to unsatisfactory outcomes as they attempt to defend themselves before the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Instead, taking experienced NMC representation early on will significantly increase your chance of a good outcome.
