Watchdog chief resigns ahead of damning Morecambe Bay scandal report 

Watchdog chief resigns ahead of damning Morecambe Bay scandal report The head of the watchdog for nurses and midwives has resigned ahead of a damning report into the regulator’s handling of the Morecambe Bay scandal.

Jackie Smith announced her departure as chief executive of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) on Monday, as it was braced for heavy criticism about a succession of failures.

The watchdog has already come under fire for allowing midwives at the heart of the scandal – where 11 babies died, following failings in care – to work for years, after concerns were raised. The Daily Telegraph
