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:
