RCN Congress

The Royal College of Nursing is not going ahead with its Congress scheduled to take place 7 to 11 June 2020 in Liverpool.

Our members are on the frontline caring for their patients in the current Coronavirus pandemic. It would simply not be right to divert our nursing workforce during this time.

As an organisation all our energies are also required to support our members at this time.

We are in the process of contacting exhibitors about how to claim refunds.

Are you personally out of pocket due to Congress 2020 not going ahead?

If you have booked travel or accommodation for Congress 2020 and are not able to claim a refund you may be eligible to claim compensation.

Thanks to the generous support from LV =, who sponsor Congress, members can now claim compensation to help cover the cost of travel, flights, hotels or other expenses which you paid for personally upfront.

Log in to the members’ area to find out more and make a claim.
