Thanking outgoing NMC president Jill Crawford, RCN chief executive and general secretary Dr Peter Carter said: ‘I would like to pay tribute to the work that Jill Crawford and her team have done in reforming the NMC. Jill took charge after a difficult period, and has provided strong and dedicated leadership to enable the council to deliver its action plan.’

The RCN urges the NMC council to keep moving forward with reform.

Following a damning review by the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE) last year, former NMC Council president Nancy Kirkland and chief executive Sarah Thewlis announced their intent to resign.
