If you are an RCN member and you work within the geographic area covered by Northumberland, Tyneside or Wearside, you are automatically a member of our 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.
The branch is currently looking for local RCN members to get involved with future events, including campaigns and membership recruitment drives.
We can also signpost you towards a number of career development and training opportunities.
If you would like to get involved with branch activities, please get in touch with your local branch representatives via the Northern region office: email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (0191) 511 5801.
