Okafor v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Medical practitioner – Appeal against determination of disciplinary committee. The appellant Band 6 midwife appealed against the decision of the Conduct and Competence Committee (the Panel) of the respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council, finding that her fitness to practise was impaired and striking her off the register. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, rejected the appellant's grounds of appeal, including that there had been delay, changes in the charges, discrimination based on her disability, and that the sanction had been unreasonable and disproportionate.
