The NMC is launching its revised code for Nurses and Midwives with effect from 31 March 2015. The code describes the professional standards of practice and behaviour for nurses and midwives.   The previous Code was published in 2008 and there have been many changes, not only socially, but in Healthcare as an industry sector.

As an employer we have responsibility to ensure that our staff provide safe and appropriate services.  The Code set out by the NMC supports this by ensuring every contact, action and decision made by a nurse or midwife is governed by core professional standards and principles.  The new code has been amended to include new requirements in:

  • Fundamentals of Care
  • The duty of Candour
  • Raising concerns
  • Delegation and accountability
  • The professional duty to take action in an emergency
  • Social media use

The revised code is available for download on the NMC Website

What people are saying about ENS

I feel I would like to give a positive review on working for ENS in any care capacity. I joined at the start of December 2015 and have been offered enough work to fit around my own needs and other commitments. The work has been varied and I received good information prior to the visit. The excellent dedicated back office support staff and they clearly understand their clients’ needs which are aligned to the qualities of the Support Workers, this helps builds the relationship.

While there is a need for help at short notice to meet the company needs I have been further impressed to have good notice of most of the work intended. My role has been largely Community Support but I have worked with our Residential team and clearly there is plentiful work again with helpful support.

In my dealings with the company I have found the ENS team to be helpful and approachable and need to reiterate how impressed I have been. Thank you to all involved.


A big thank you to you and all of the booking team that have put up with me over the months and helped me get an amazing full time job, Thank you :)

Thank you Maria once again for helping me get out of unemployment, I sincerely appreciate all the effort and support you gave me during this period.
