RCN South West Region


The RCN Torbay branch delivers local RCN services to members and provides opportunities to shape the RCN’s work. Our local representatives are your first port of call if you need to talk to someone about a workplace or professional issue. You can contact them through RCN Direct on 0345 772 6100.

If you’d like to find out what your local RCN Torbay branch does, and how you can become involved, or just have your say about issues that matter to you as a member of the nursing profession, then we’re keen to meet you at our meetings.

All members are very welcome to attend meetings, as are nursing staff who are interested in joining the RCN on the day.

For more information please email branch chair Margaret Ritchie:


Please note if you are planning on attending a branch meeting for the first time, please ensure you are clear where the RCN office is.

Here are some maps of the hospital to help you find us. The RCN office is upstairs in a portacabin near the breast care centre and the TAIRU building, behind the DPT mental health unit.

Openings in the branch executive committee

Are you branch executive material? Add another string to your bow as branch chair, treasurer, secretary or another executive role. If you are interested, please read these branch officer role descriptors and terms of reference for branch committees and then make your expression of interest via South West Regional Service Manager before our AGM on 31 October.
