RCN North West Region
Manchester Central

Manchester Central

Welcome to the RCN Manchester Central branch page. The branch covers all members working in the Manchester, Trafford and Salford areas of Greater Manchester. With a membership of over 11,000 nurses, assistant practitioners, health care support workers and students, we are the biggest branch in the UK.
As a relatively new branch, we want to develop nursing networks and information structures not just for those who work for large NHS employers within the branch, but also for members who work in the independent and voluntary sectors, in GP practices, and in education. This will enable the branch to become influential within Greater Manchester in discussing and developing the health care agendas within the cities.  The branch meets formally four times a year, with smaller workplace and interest meetings taking place as members request them.

Get involved
You can check if you're a member of the Manchester Central branch by looking at MyRCN.  We use this page to publicise meetings and events, so please do get in touch with the regional office if you have any queries by emailing
