Fitness to Practise
A nurse or midwife’s Fitness to Practice can be impaired by:
• Lack of competence;
• A Criminal Conviction (even outside of the UK);
• Physical or mental ill health.
• A finding by any other health or social care regulator or licensing body e.g. the Care Standards Tribunal, that fitness to practice is impaired or an entry fraudulently or incorrectly made in the register.
