Number of NMC UK OSCE Test Providers to Increase to Five

Posted on: Wed 20-10-2021

We are pleased to announce that we have awarded contracts to five partners to deliver the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) part of our ToC from February 2022 onwards.

In addition to renewing our contracts with our current OSCE delivery partners – Oxford Brookes University, the University of Northampton and Ulster University – we have awarded contracts to Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Northumbria University. This follows a competitive and open bidding process across all four countries of the UK.

By increasing the number of test sites we have increased capacity and improved accessibility for those taking the OSCE. This will support us in meeting demand and to get those professionals with the right skills and knowledge on our register as safely and quickly as possible.

Candidates will be able to book their tests from December, and further information on how to do this will be shared at that time.
