The Section 60 Order will remove statutory midwifery supervision from the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC’s) governing legislation.

The Department is also in discussions with the NMC on what other reforms may be achieved through the Order.

The Order will be subject to a full public consultation early next year.
