Nurses and Midwives now have a flexible way of paying their annual registration fee, as the NMC introduces a new payment by instalment option.
The payment by instalment option was launched today after feedback from nurses and midwives showed a more flexible payment system was needed. Nurses and midwives can choose to pay their £120 annual registration fee by quarterly direct debit payments of £30.
This comes as good news to healthcare professionals who have found themselves in financial difficulty resulting in failure to pay the large amount in a single lump sum. Care is advised however that direct debits are paid on time, failure to ensure your NMC registration fee is up to date may result in the suspension of your registration.
"We are delighted to launch this new payment option, which will give greater flexibility to nurses and midwives when they pay their annual fee" - Jackie Smith, NMC Chief Executive and Registrar.
Switching from an annual payment or newly signing up to quarterly payments by instalment is available through an NMC Online account, using Direct Debit.
