RCN Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland Assembly elections

The Northern Ireland Assembly elections on 5 May 2016 provided an important opportunity for RCN members to help set the health agenda for the next five years.

In advance of the election, the RCN Northern Ireland Board agreed a series of strategic priorities that we believe all our political parties must address in order to deliver the very best health care services for the people of Northern Ireland. They focus upon building political consensus on the way forward, prioritising public health and reinstating partnership working, and delivering fair pay for nurses in Northern Ireland.

Over the next five years, the RCN will continue to use these priorities to engage with Assembly members in order to seek their continued commitment and support for nurses and nursing in Northern Ireland.
