To ask Her Majesty's Government how many (1) registered clinicians, and (2) registered nurses, have been removed from their professional registers for failing to meet professional standards in each of the past 10 years.
Regulation of the health professions is performed by the nine independent health regulators (including the General Medical Council as regulator for doctors, and the Nursing and Midwifery Council as the regulator for nurses and midwives).
These health regulators have core statutory duties that include the investigation of concerns about the performance and conduct of those whom they regulate. They also have powers to remove health professionals from their register should it be concluded, after investigation, that they are not fit to practise.
As the regulators conduct their duties independently from Government, statistics relating to the performance of their statutory duties (including the taking of fitness to practise action) are held by them, and not the department.
