Equal pay for NHS and care staff doing same job

Two new nurse groups to join temporary register

Nursing regulator the Nursing and Midwifery Council has opened the temporary register to the following two additional cohorts of overseas-trained nurses:

  1. Overseas-trained nurses who have been issued with their OSCE decision letters (currently just over 2,000 people)
  2. Overseas-trained nurses from whom the NMC has received a registration application and relevant supporting declarations. Employers will need to certify each applicant’s English language ability, clinical skills, and health and character.

Annexe 1 explains the process the NMC will follow to open the temporary register to these cohorts and how it will provide adequate assurance of their suitability to practise during this emergency.

A significant proportion of those overseas-trained nurses who are eligible to join the temporary register will be from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. Care employers should take full responsibility for protecting these professionals from additional risks via a workforce risks assessment.

NMC chief executive and registrar Andrea Sutcliffe CBE added:Conditions of practice will be applied to the temporary registration of both these groups to ensure safe and supported practice.”

All routes onto the temporary register set up in 2020 as a COVID-19 response remain open.
