Pay by instalments option open to nurses and midwives
Nurses and midwives can now pay their annual registration fee by quarterly direct debit
Nurses have been given greater flexibility over how they pay their nursing and midwifery subs.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has introduced a new payment-by-instalments option.
Registrants can now choose to pay their £120 annual registration fee by quarterly direct debit payments of £30.
Switching from an annual payment or newly signing up to quarterly payments by instalment is available through the NMC online account, using direct debit.
The NMC has launched the instalments option from today (24 June) after listening to the views of nurses and midwives who said a more flexible payment system was needed.
NMC registrar Jackie Smith said: 'The NMC is delighted to launch this new payment option, which will give greater flexibility to nurses and midwives when they pay their annual fee.
'I’m very pleased that we’ve been able to respond to the positive and constructive conversations we’ve had with nurses and midwives to improve this service.'
