Reviewers will examine the college's governance and decision making. They will consult focus groups and invite all college members to complete a survey.

RCN council chair Dee Sissons said: 'We are determined to learn from what has gone before and ensure we are not only committed to listening to our members but know for sure we have the structures in place to hear their voice.'

The findings will be published ahead of the 2020 RCN congress in Liverpool.

The review will be conducted by the Centre for Public Scrutiny.
