An Introduction to the GNCT

The General Nursing Council for England & Wales Trust (GNCT) seeks to promote the development of nursing for the benefit of society.

Who We Are

The General Nursing Council for England and Wales Trust is an independent charitable trust. The Trust was set up in 1983 when the General Nursing Council for England and Wales, the regulatory body for the nursing profession in England and Wales during the preceding 60 years, was abolished under the Nurses and Midwives and Health Visitors Act 1979.

What We Do

The GNCT funds research to enhance the practice and profession of nursing. The Trustees are also committed to advancing the education of student nurses and further education of Registered Nurses. We do this by funding research and through travel scholarships offered in partnership with the Florence Nightingale Foundation.  The GNCT is a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) non commercial Partner .This means the studies that we fund may be eligible to access NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) support .
