Thank you for your interest in the role of panel chair.
We want to receive applications from as broad a range of panel members as possible; to ensure that our panel chairs are representative of the UK population for lay chairs and the professions we regulate for registrant chairs.
To be a panel chair you need to be able to lead and manage the hearing to facilitate the panel in reaching timely, logical, fair and balanced decisions and importantly be able to explain them in simple terms to the people who are affected. You will need to be able to work well as a leader but also as part of a team and be empathetic and adaptable to the needs of those around you.
If you have never considered a chairing role such as this before you should know that, if you are successful in your application, we will provide the training and support required to enable you to make the step up to a panel chair and make a positive impact.
If you have the leadership skills necessary to be an effective panel chair we would welcome your application.
Thank you for all that you do as an NMC panel member. The independent decisions that you take with your colleagues ensure the public is protected and public confidence in the professions is maintained and we are grateful to you for it.
Edina Ojeifo Interim Assistant Director, Nursing and Midwifery Council
