The Labour and Liberal Democrat leaders will be welcomed to RCN Congress in Liverpool.

Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron will address Congress delegates before taking questions.

We hope a Conservative speaker will also be able to join us.

Those not attending Congress can watch the proceedings live at and comment via Twitter using #RCN17

Chief Executive & General Secretary Janet Davies said: “I am pleased that Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron will attend our annual Congress this year and speak to our members on the important issues facing nursing staff.

“This will be a fantastic opportunity for RCN members to find out where these parties stand on our nursing priorities.”

The RCN manifesto: Nursing Counts was launched earlier in May and asks party candidates to pledge to improve, value and support nursing.
