Anyone been referred to NMC?

Can't give many details obviously, but it was quite a minor issue. I was scapegoated and dismissed and then sent a letter to say I was being referred to the NMC.

That was over a month ago and I haven't heard anything.

Can I assume it's not happening? AIBU to stop telling people when I apply for jobs, since I have no confirmation that it's actually really going ahead?

Does anyone know what may be going on?

My union said I was no longer covered by them once I resigned.

Empty you may not have seen my post from yesterday, but I asked if you meant that the union would no longer represent you at the disciplinary with your employer? Once you have resigned there isn't really anything the union can do for you in your dispute with your trust.

This does not mean they would not represent you at the NMC.

I took MARS (cheap redundancy with less protection) a few years ago against RCN advice. The RCN would not offer any legal advice to me about this specific process (as they advised against it) but I could still access them for everything else.

The employment section of the MN legal boards may be useful.

No that's what I mean. When I was going to resign, I was told to think carefully as it would leave me with no protection should they sack me or go to the NMC.

Make a Subject Access Request and gain access to any information they have about you. You don't have to specify dates of emails, just state you want all documentation / correspondence relating to your from (for instance) 1 January 2018.

You need advice. Sorry to appear dim but I'm not sure with nursing. In my role ( sonographer) we can take legal advice from the society of radiographers.
Is there anything similar for nurses?

I believe you when you say they've created the evidence.
I've seen it myself within a trust where someone whistleblew and the trust went for blood. It was horrendous to see but he managed to retain his registration.
He had done nothing wrong and had a lot of eveidence against senior management
It became something of a witch hunt towards him.

If there's nothing coming up on your nmc online account then you don't have to mention anything I don't think.
