INMO Welcomes Reports Examining NMBI
Press Release 30.06.16

Reports vindicate INMO’s  successful campaign of opposition to increase in registration fees     


The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) welcomes the publication today of two reports examining organisational and financial processes within the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).

The findings of the reports, both of which identify serious shortcomings in the past, recommend significant changes to governance, internal procedures and structures generally which must be implemented immediately. 

The reports’ findings also fully vindicate the INMO’s campaign of opposition, which took place in the first half of 2015, against a proposed 50% increase in the annual registration fee levied by the NMBI. Throughout this campaign the INMO constantly sought greater detail and clarity, with regard to the Board’s processes, which were never forthcoming.

The INMO also notes that, in recent weeks, significant changes have taken place, at leadership level within the Board, with the appointment of a new CEO and the election of a new President.

The INMO is committed to working with this new team in implementing the recommendations, of these two reports. The public is best served by a strong regulatory Board which has the confidence of nurses and midwives by ensuring they are in a position to deliver high quality care through safe practice.  This must be our collective goal over the next two years.
