Have your say and help shape our future, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has urged registrants.

The regulator is asking for views on areas it should focus on in its strategy for 2020-2025.

NMC chief executive Andrea Sutcliffe.

Nurses, midwives, nursing associates and the public can submit their views via an online feedback form between now and June.

Responses will be used to decide key themes for the five-year strategy, which will be put out to consultation later this year.

'We need your contributions'

In a blog post, NMC chief executive Andrea Sutcliffe said: 'I am asking everyone – the public, people who use services and patients; nurses, midwives and nursing associates; our partners; and NMC colleagues – to get involved. We need your contributions to help us co-produce our future.

'We want to understand what you think are the big issues that will impact on health and social care; how they will affect nursing and midwifery; and what this may mean for the NMC. We want to hear what you think we do well, what we need to work on, and how the NMC can continue to improve.'
