High Court Success for Midwife Challenging Unfair Finding of Impairment by NMC Panel

In Doris Enemuwe v Nursing and Midwifery Council [2015] EWHC 2081 (Admin), the High Court found that the initial disciplinary panel had been subject to a serious procedural irregularity, in that the Conduct and Competence Committee had been unduly influenced by the findings of a previous local investigation by the Supervisor of Midwives.  Mr Justice Holman accordingly quashed the Committee's finding that Ms Enemuwe's fitness to practise was impaired, as well as the sanction of a twelve month caution order.   

Ms Enemuwe was represented by Jacqueline Lule, instructed under the Direct Public Access Scheme.
