LDE Letter to the Nursing and Midwifery Council

Publish date: 19th October 2017

The Representative Body aims to challenge national funding issues, improve opportunities, and change attitudes towards people with learning disabilities. With this ethos in mind all those involved were shocked to learn that a nurse who punched someone under his care so hard in the face that he broke his jaw and knocked out two of his teeth has been judged 'fit to practise' by the Nursing and Midwifery Council! This simply cannot be allowed to go unchallenged so the Representative Body has written a letter to the Council that you can read here. If you feel as strongly about this as we do please share this letter with as many people as possible and hopefully together we can get justice for the young man concerned and ensure that the culprit never has the opportunity to work with people with a learning disability ever again.
