Have your say on the NMC's equality objectives.

The NMC has launched a consultation on its draft equality objectives for 2012 to 2015, and is encouraging all stakeholders to contribute. The draft equality objectives for 2012 to 2015 focus on five core issues: embedding diversity, leadership, governance, staffing, and service delivery.

NMC Acting Chief Executive and Registrar, Jackie Smith, said: 'To ensure that the regulation of all nurses and midwives is effective and proportionate, we have a duty to give proper consideration to equality and diversity issues. We have started to make real progress in communicating our commitment to diversity, and embedding it within our work. This consultation provides an opportunity for stakeholders to help shape our equality objectives and ensure our processes remain open, transparent and fair.'

Unite Lead Professional Officer, Obi Amadi, said: 'The Equality Subcommitee intends to respond to this on behalf of Unite'.
