Solicitor Orla Crowe is appointed to nursing board

Solicitor Orla Crowe has been appointed to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI) as director of fitness to practise.

Crowe is a solicitor of 11 years’ standing and specialised in child protection, working in the health and social-care department of ByrneWallace.

Previously, Crowe worked as a criminal-defence solicitor and as a human-rights lawyer in Kosovo and Malawi.

Integrity of professions

The NMBI said: “Orla has always had an interest in the professions of nursing and midwifery, as her mother is a registered nurse who continues to practise in Mayo. 

“She looks forward to working to protect the integrity of the professions by considering and investigating complaints about a registered nurse or midwife’s fitness to practise.”
