RCN Yorkshire and the Humber - by your side and on your side

The backbone of our support for members is provided by our regional RCN representatives - volunteers who ensure that members are treated fairly, and with dignity and respect in the workplace.

Our regional staff, which includes professional RCN officers and legal advisers, provide RCN members with support and help if required.

As well as having free access to a wide range of professional and educational resources, such as the RCN e-library, members also have access to RCN Direct, which offers free telephone advice to members from 8.30am to 8.30pm, 365 days a year on 0345 772 6100.

Professional support for you

We promote learning and development through conferences, events, programmes and publications. As the voice of nursing, we campaign for nurses to safeguard your interests. If you're not a member of the RCN, then join today.
