IMUK MEMBERS GRANTED COST CAP HEARING ON 13 JUNE IN NMC CHALLENGE

On 13 June 2017, a ‘cost cap hearing’ will take place at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

This is for the claim brought by a number of IMUK members against the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) to overturn their unfair ruling prohibiting IMUK member’s attendance for clients during their labour.

This hearing will decide whether a cap should be placed upon the legal fees charged for bringing this claim and if so, at what level this will be capped.

This case will proceed to full trial following this hearing and the claimants will be informed of the trial date in due course.

As you’ll understand, the legal costs involved in bringing these proceedings are incredibly high, which is why the IMUK members have been crowdfunding over these past months.

So far we have raised over £27,000 but the actual figure needed could be much higher, especially if no potential limit is placed on how high these costs can go.

With so many independent midwives currently unemployed, our members simply do not have the means to meet these costs ourselves.

We are incredibly grateful for the support IMUK has received throughout this process so far and we endeavour to continue the fight for justice for all pregnant women and the midwives that provide their care.

As always, we will be sure to update you as the campaign develops. Should you want to support our efforts, you can donate to IMUK’s Fighting Fund here.
