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 .
The process for 2019 grants is now open with a closing date of 29th March 2019 . Please see our focus for 2019 and details of the grant process are to be found on the GRANTS Section of this website .
The trustees are delighted to report that Mr Robert Parry has succeeded Mrs Maureen Morgan as a trustee on completion of her three year term of office.
