Recently suspended midwives

The principal purpose of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 is to protect the health and safety of the public by ensuring that health practitioners are competent and fit to practise. 

Most midwives are competent, conscientious and professional in the way they practise. However, on some occasions either the Council or the Health Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal determines that there are concerns serious enough to warrant suspension of the midwife from practice.
