SIPTU calls for full disclosure of NMBI organisational review
SIPTU has welcomed the publication of 18 reform recommendations arising from an external organisational review of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) by Crowe Horwath Accountants.
Kevin Figgis said: “We met with the NMBI on Thursday, 3rd December and were given a copy of the recommendations from this external review by Crowe Horwath Accountants. However, the Board declined to provide us with a copy of the full report. It is quite clear from the recommendations that the NMBI requires structural reform in order to fulfil its statutory requirements and obligations to its members.
The 18 recommendations cover change management at the NMBI, the structure of the executive team, financial resources and funding, processes at NMBI, developing the organisation structure, IT systems, strategy, business planning and governance arrangements.
“The SIPTU National Nurses and Midwifery Committee will meet early next week to consider the recommendations. Following this meeting a statement will be issued to our members”, he said.
