Enemuwe v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Medical practitioner – Appeal against determination of disciplinary committee. The appellant registered midwife appealed against the decision of the Conduct and Competence Committee (the Committee) of the respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council, finding allegations proved and making a caution order for 12 months. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that there had been a serious irregularity in the Committee having considered the investigation and report of the supervisor of midwives. The Committee should have treated those findings and decision as completely irrelevant and excluded from its consideration.
