The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) has signed a ten-year lease for offices in Stratford.
The NMC is the independent regulator for nurses, midwives and nursing associates and maintains the standards of those healthcare professionals.
It joins Unicef UK, the Financial Conduct Authority and Transport for London in Stratford’s One Westfield Avenue. The new NMC office occupies 21,744 square feet in the building.
The Council will keep its two existing central London premises as well as one in Edinburgh.
Matthew McClelland, NMC director of fitness to practise, said: “As well as delivering substantial cost savings, the move will bring our Fitness to Practise teams much closer together, supporting innovation and collaboration and creating the right environment for our employees to better support the people we’re here to serve.”
