Oluyemi v Nursing and Midwifery Council

Medical practitioner – Appeal against determination of disciplinary committee. The appellant nurse appealed against the decision of the respondent Nursing and Midwifery Council (the NMC), finding her guilty of misconduct by dishonestly using a forged passport and related documents to obtain employment, and ordering the erasure of her name from the register. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the NMC had not failed to consider the appellant's reflective statement and had clearly given its reasons for its conclusions. Further, striking off had been the only proportionate and reasonable sanction in the circumstances.
