If the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) reaches a decision which calls into question your fitness to practice, then you may be able to make an appeal with proper representation.
Appealing an NMC Decision
NMC decisions are not set in stone. Like a legal conviction, you have the opportunity to get the case reviewed, and the outcome re-evaluated.
If you want to pursue an appeal, then you need to make your intentions clear to the High Court within 28 days. This period will begin from the day after you receive your letter stating the final outcome of any investigation or review.
Grounds for an NMC Appeal
There are many grounds as to why you can make an appeal, and Oracle Law will look into all of them.
Firstly, it may be the case that the investigation into your situation was flawed or in violation of regulations. Our firm can review the case and determine whether or not everything was pursued lawfully.
Secondly, whatever transgression you have been accused of might not have an effect on your ability to provide proper care for your patients. We may be able to argue that you are still perfectly fit to do the job, regardless of the violation.
Thirdly, new evidence may come to light which has to be considered when deciding what order should be passed in response to your situation. We can present this on your behalf, potentially changing the outcome entirely.
These are just three reasons as to why a successful appeal can be made. You can depend on our firm to make sure all of them are thoroughly pursued.
