Re:    Removal from An Bord Altranais Register for non-payment of Annual Retention Fee


Dear Colleagues

It has come to our attention that the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland at a meeting on the 29th April 2014 decided that any nurse or midwife who has outstanding Registration fees due on the 30th May 2014 will be automatically removed from the Register.

In accordance with the provisions of the Nurses & Midwives Act 2011, the Board are empowered to take this step, and in accordance with that Act, it is an offence for any person who has been removed from the Register to practice as a nurse.

Following from removal from the Register, one can apply to be readmitted to the Register with six months of the original fee falling due.  This means that any person removed for non-payment of fees on the 30th May must reapply before the 1st July 2014, if one does not do so, one will be regarded as a new Registrant and one will go through a full Registration process and pay associated fees.

Obviously the payment of fees is a matter solely between individual Registered nurses and midwives and the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland, however, in light of the serious implications of removal from the Register for individual nurses and midwives, I thought it prudent to bring this matter to your attention.

Thank you for your attention to the foregoing.

Yours sincerely

EDWARD MATHEWS
Director of Regulation & Social Policy
