Professional Standards for Health and Social Care v Nursing and Midwifery Council and another

Medical practitioner – Appeal against determination of disciplinary committee. The first respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council's (the NMC) decision to offer no evidence against the second respondent nurse for being directly or indirectly responsible for one or more non-accidental injuries caused to her baby, and its Conduct and Competence Committee decision that there had been no case to answer, had been decisions which no reasonable NMC or committee could have reached. Accordingly, the Administrative Court quashed the NMC's decision to offer no evidence and the committee's decision that there had been no case to answer, and remitted the case to the NMC with directions.
