Nurse Revalidation

Nurse Revalidation comes into effect from April 2016. This is a new process by which nurses and midwifes demonstrate that they practice safely.

 All nurses and midwifes will need to demonstrate that they:

  • Practice a minimum number of hours.
  • Attend regular training sessions
  • Obtain feedback about their practice

At NPMC we will be working with the Nursing and Midwifery Council to ensure all of our nurses are working to a high standard. As part of this we will be asking for feedback from patients who are seen by the Practice Nurse Team on a regular basis.
