Stonewall: Letter to Nursing and Midwifery Council

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the regulatory body for nurses, midwives and health visitors. This letter, drafted by concerned nurses and other healthcare professionals, calls for:

a) the NMC to withdraw from Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme and Workplace Equality Index;

b) the four Chief Nurses of the UK to publicly support the withdrawal of NHS bodies and Trusts from the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme and to commit that all affiliations and policies requiring action or fulfilment by nurses be fully conversant with our Code.
