Newly elected member for the Yorkshire & the Humber region, Andy Bassett-Scott Toogood, said: "When I found out I had been elected I was over the moon. It will be an honour to represent my region. I feel that as a new committee we have such a lot to offer our members as now is such a challenging time for nursing and more than ever we need to be a ‘union’.”

Elections for the RCN Professional Nursing Committee, which will fulfil a vital role in helping the RCN to achieve its purpose as a royal college, will open on Monday.

*Elected unopposed.
