RCN Northern Region


Cumbria branch is your voice in the RCN.

If you are an RCN member and you work within Cumbria, you are automatically a member of Cumbria branch.  

As well as sending delegates to RCN's annual Congress, the branch has representation on the RCN's regional board. 

We hold regular meetings where we discuss issues of concern to local members. 

As a member you are invited to attend

If you would like to book a place to attend a branch meeting, please contact the RCN Northern region office at or on 0191 511 5801. 

Your branch president is Ella Cullen; your chair is Karen Dutton, your secretary is Rachael Ridley and your treasurer is Lynda High.

The branch is currently looking for local RCN members to get involved with future events, including campaigns and membership recruitment drives. We can signpost you towards a number of career development and training opportunities. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved.
