The QA Link will go live on 17 August 2020. QA Link is the NMC’s modernised IT system for supporting education quality assurance activities, replacing the QA Hub system (provided by Mott MacDonald). The QA Link brings together the functionality of the approved programme database and the previous QA Hub system.
The approach to quality assurance remains the same and will still be completed through the gateways process. Full quality assurance processes are outlined in the NMC QA handbook.
All existing ongoing requests will be transferred over from QA Hub at their current stage in the QA process. The QA hub will go offline on the 12 August 2020. All new requests made after this date will need to be submitted in the new QA Link.
To support AEIs and visitors of the new system the NMC have a dedicated helpdesk support you with any queries or faults on the QA Link. For example, logging in to the QA Link, password re-sets and difficulty viewing/accessing gateways.
You can contact the NMC QA Link helpdesk by emailing email@example.com. The NMC QA Link helpdesk is operated Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm.
Mott MacDonald will continue to provide a helpdesk to assist you with any queries around scheduling activity (including contracts, fees, visit dates, and so on). Plus, we have the professional team on call to help with any professional queries (including NMC requirements, condition for a visit, and so on).
You can contact the Mott MacDonald team via the helpline 01223 463441 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mott MacDonald helpdesk is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:30pm.
Please refer to the QA Link Support Guide for further information about which helpdesk to contact.
