    Please sign the petition to encourage a review of the NMC and the charging of annual fees to Nurses and Midwives.

    http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/60164

    We 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

    A shameless and failing organisation which, unfortunately, holds us to ransom every year.

    Teachers one was stopped a few years ago, why are they still doing it?

    Of course members could choose not to pay the increased fees. I know my NHS Trust is short of midwives so they are in a striong position if they feel strongly enough about £20 a year – same as the increase in parking fees at the hospital.

    Its (mostly) wooden dollars too, as they can set them against their tax.

    Fee rise is bad but not as bad as the real-term pay drop every year for how long now?
    Petition signed though!

    Not necessarily just £20 though, my wife is dual Adult and Paediatric qualified so she has to pay 2 sets of fees a year. Up from £200 to £240. Thieving lizards….

    As a professional type fee thats pretty normal, I pay more for my profession. Also I wouldnt go asking a doctor how much they have to pay if you think that is expensive !
