Fitness to Practise findings and decisions

 

Publication of the findings of the Fitness to Practise Committees established under the Nurses and Midwives Act, 2011 and the Nurses Act, 1985 respectively and the decision of the Board on any report made to it by either Committee are published in accordance with the appropriate publication policy.
 
For legal reasons, there may sometimes be a delay in publishing decisions after the conclusion of an inquiry.
 
In certain cases, the Board has to consider a decision referred to it on the grounds that a nurse or midwife has been convicted of a serious offence. This is explained on the Grounds for Complaint page.
