October's Member eNewsletter
RCN North West has created a regional Member eNewsletter, designed to keep members in the North West up to date with what's happening locally. The eNewsletter has lots of interesting features about what's going on, from across the independent and NHS healthcare sectors, as well as current news and events from across the North West.
This month's eNewsletter features an editorial from the new North West Regional Director Estephanie Dunn, along with details of the RCN North West Regional conference, ‘Managing Health & Wellbeing in times of national stress'. It also includes important information on the RCN's 'What If' pay campaign and the march in London in October, along with full details of all the nursing events and branch AGMs across the region. Read the October e-Newsletter here.
