Duty to notify registered nurse or registered midwife of compliance with decisions confirmed or given by Court.

76.— (1) The Board shall, on complying with a decision confirmed or given by the Court under section 73 or 74 to attach conditions to the registration of a nurse or midwife, give notice in writing to the nurse or midwife of the conditions as soon as is practicable after complying with section 46(8) in respect of the conditions.

(2) The Board shall, on complying with a decision confirmed or given by the Court under section 73 or 74 to transfer a registered nurse’s or registered midwife’s registration to another division of the register of nurses and midwives—

( a) transfer the nurse’s or midwife’s registration to the division concerned, and

( b) give notice in writing to the nurse or midwife of the division to which the nurse’s or midwife’s registration has been transferred as soon as is practicable after effecting such transfer.

(3) The Board shall, on complying with a decision confirmed or given by the Court under section 73 or 74 to suspend for a specified period or to cancel the registration of a nurse or midwife, give notice in writing to the nurse or midwife of—

( a) the suspension or cancellation, as the case may be, and

( b) in the case of a suspension, the period, beginning not earlier than 7 days after the date of the Court’s decision, during which the registration is to be suspended.

(4) For the avoidance of doubt, it is hereby declared that where the registration of a nurse or midwife is suspended in compliance with a decision confirmed or given by the Court under section 73 or 74 to suspend that registration for a specified period—

( a) subject to paragraph (b), this Act shall apply to the nurse or midwife during that period as if the nurse or midwife were an unregistered nurse or unregistered midwife, except that the nurse or midwife concerned shall still be subject to the provisions of this Act relating to fitness to practise and sanctions during the period of suspension, and

( b) section 43 shall not apply to the nurse or midwife during that period to the extent only that the nurse or midwife uses a title referred to in that section which would not be a contravention of that section if the nurse’s or midwife’s registration were not suspended.
