  • NEWS: Nurses and midwives will be forced to pay another £20 a year more after the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) agreed to hike fees for its members from £100 to £120 a year.

    In order to work in the UK, nurses and midwives have to be registered with the NMC and, like other regulatory bodies, the organisation charges annual fees to its members.

    Mark Addison, chair of the NMC, explained: "Today we made the difficult decision to increase the annual registration fee for nurses and midwives to £120.

    "We have considered the responses to the consultation in detail and we have listened carefully to the issues raised.

    "We recognise the financial pressures that many nurses and midwives are facing at a time of widespread pay restraint, and the tough and demanding jobs they do.

    "However, as council members and trustees of the NMC, our first duty is to ensure the protection of the public."
