RCN North West Region
Lancashire East

Lancashire East

Welcome to the RCN Lancashire East branch page. The branch covers a large geographical area of Lancashire and aims to (a) develop our communication networks and reach out to both NHS and non-NHS members; (b) be the voice of nursing and influence the health care arena in Lancashire; and (c) hold regular events to help you keep up-to-date, improve your practice, and to enable you to debate and network with colleagues.

If you are an Health Care Assistant (HCA), Assistant Practitioner (AP), student, community nurse, hospital nurse, nurse tutor, retired nurse or have any other nursing job that makes you eligible to join the RCN, then the branch Executive wants to hear your ideas and suggestions for taking the branch forward. The branch regularly circulates a newsletter and up-to-date information on events and other news of interest. For more information and to be added to the circulation list, please contact the branch Secretary.
