RCN Eastern members working hard on campaign

 Teresa Budrey 5 Sep 2019 Eastern

As the action needed to tackle the issue of nursing shortages becomes an extreme challenge, it is clear that you, our members, will be the driving force in highlighting the problem.

The staffing for safe and effective care campaign is being planned, developed and delivered by a core group of our members. In addition we have a growing army of e-campaigners coming on board to help raise the profile of the campaign in whatever way they can.

Planning a campaign on this scale, with the ultimate aim of influencing the highest levels of Government, is no small task. Our members have taken on this role while also fulfilling work and family commitments. We thank them for their hard work and dedication on behalf of all our members.

Together, we will make sure politicians and the public take nurse staffing seriously and act to protect patients and the profession.

As the campaign grows, we still need more of you to become involved by engaging with events or signing up as e-campaigners. This need not mean giving up huge amounts of time. Being an e-campaigner can be as little as sharing messages on social media or handing a leaflet to a colleague, or as much as meeting with politicians or arranging your own event.

Please join us so you can be part of a campaign we are confident will make a real difference to your own working lives and to the patients you care for. Sign up as a e-campaigner and we’ll let you know about the ways you can become involved.
