    Good morning,

    I thought I’d bring to your attention a serious error in the information you have provided above. The UKCC ceased to exist in 2001 and was replaced with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (same address). Anyone wishing for information about registering in the UK should contact the registration department on +44 (0)20 7333 9333 or visit http://www.nmc-uk.org.

    Please note that the UKCC and the four national boards are no longer in existance. The UKCC was replaced by the Nursing & Midwifery Council in 2002. The NMC was also set up to take over the functions of the four national boards.

    For information about working in the UK as a nurse or midwife, please see our website http://www.nmc-uk.org and go to Registration, then Join the Register, then choose Trained in the EU or Trained Overseas, depending on which applies to you. Alternatively you can call our Overseas team on 00 44 20 7333 6600.
