RCN members working in Essex will automatically become a member of the Essex branch. The area includes major NHS trusts covering Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford and the Princess Alexandra in Harlow, as well as independent sector providers and care homes.
Getting involved in your local branch is a great way of getting your voice heard at the RCN as well as accessing many learning and development events. The branch holds county conferences four times a year where a wide range of speakers are invited to talk on nursing matters. It is also a good opportunity to network with other members and discuss important issues.
The branch is always looking for local RCN members to get involved in our work, including taking part in campaigns to help expand the profile of nursing and highlight issues which matter to nurses.
