The introduction of revalidation for nurses and midwives has been a major success, with the majority of those due to renew their registration revalidating successfully.
Latest figures show 90.48% percent (14,362) of the 15,873 due to revalidate in April have successfully renewed their registration through revalidation and only 1,401 have left the register. This is in line with the number of registrants we would normally expect to leave the register in any given April.
Junior doctors at the hospitals within Birmingham, Solihull and the Black Country are due to take full industrial action between the hours of 8am and 5pm on Tuesday April 26 and Wednesday April 27, 2016.

Consultants and other medical staff within the hospital/s will still be working during the strike.
