Important Information Re Removal From NMBI Register For Non Payment Of Retention Fee.
Notice 29.03.18


Effective 29th March the NMBI have removed a number of nurses and midwives from the register for non-payment of the annual retention fee. This is a function of the Board undertake independently pursuant to the Nurses and Midwives Act 2011. If you have been removed from the register you are not permitted to practice.

We have been negotiating with the NMBI this week to ensure the smoothest process possible to ensure our members can efficiently re-register and continue to practice.

If you have been removed from the register it is essential that you follow these steps to ensure re-registration prior to practicing:

  1. Download re-registration form from the NMBI website;
  2. Complete form and sign it;
  3. Return to NMBI with re-registration fee and annual retention fee, and once you receive your annual certificate the matter will be resolved;
  4. Alternatively we have negotiated with the NMBI to maintain a phone line open on Friday 30th March and Monday 2nd April, which can be accessed at 1890 200 116. It will be open 8am to 8pm on Good Friday and 8am to 5:30pm on Bank Holiday Monday. If you avail of the telephone option your proof of payment will be emailed to you. The NMBI have confirmed that proof of payment is proof that you are restored to the register and permitted to practice.

Bearing in mind that submitting your re-registration form by post can take up to 7 days I strongly urge that you avail of the telephone option to ensure proof of payment can be emailed to you immediately, and in turn proof of payment is sufficient to allow you to practice as you will have been restored to the register.

If you have exceptional circumstances which you believe should give rise to waiver of the re-registration fee then you may write a letter of appeal to the NMBI seeking waiver, and your INMO industrial relations officer can assist you in this regard. However, where you must practice in the interim you should make full payment and then seek the waiver thereafter.

You can consult NMBI for further details.
