£122,000 pay off for NMC chief executive who quit

The NMC has confirmed that former chief executive Sarah Thewlis received a pay off of almost £122,000 following her resignation last year.

Ms Thewlis resigned last year following scathing criticism of the NMC by the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE).

NMC President Nancy Kirkland also retired after the CHRE found 'serious weaknesses in its governance and culture', during an investigation into allegations of racism and bullying.

Financial accounts for the financial year 08/09, published this week show Ms Thewlis received £121, 825 in ‘compensation’ for the termination of her employment.
