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 are a forum in which you can discuss issues that affect nursing staff in Cumbria. We can also signpost you towards a number of career development and training opportunities.
We are currently looking for local RCN members to get involved with future events, including campaigns. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved.
Your branch president is Ella Cullen; your chair is Karen Dutton, your secretary is Rachael Ridley and your treasurer is Lynda High.
