This RCN membership group acts as an influencing and lobbying agent to prompt lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality within the RCN and the health care sector. The network has a formal business meeting at Congress each year and membership of the network enables additional access to the RCN's renowned political leadership programme.

The RCN’s Principles of nursing practice tell us what patients, colleagues, families and carers can expect from nursing. Principle A states: ‘Nurses and nursing staff treat everyone in their care with dignity and humanity – they understand their individual needs, show compassion and sensitivity, and provide care in a way that respects all people equally.
The Library and Heritage Centre is collecting material to better reflect our LGBT+ members, making sure our collections represent the diversity of nursing to this and future generations.
