The Minister for Health, Simon Harris TD, recently launched the new Statement of Strategy 2017-2019 of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI), the statutory regulator of nurses and midwives.
|Speaking at the launch the Minister for Health said: “Providing leadership through innovative and proactive professional regulation to registered nurses and midwives to help them deliver safe care is vital, and so I strongly welcome NMBI’s new strategy to facilitate this. Government, and I, are fully committed to patient safety through the provision of robust, independent, statutory regulation. NMBI plays an important role in protecting the public while ensuring the integrity of the professions through the promotion of high standards of education, training, practice and professional standards. I look forward to continuing to work with the body in this respect over the course of this new strategy.
