Have you considered becoming a member of the HCA network in Northern Ireland?

The RCN Northern Ireland HCA network wants to hear from HCA and nursing assistant members in Northern Ireland to evaluate how the RCN can meet your needs. Please help us by filling in our survey and tell us what you’d like to see the RCN do for you.

The member-lead for the Northern Ireland network is Dennis Greer, who also sits on the Trade Union Committee of the RCN, and the staff link is Brenda Rushe. If you are interested in joining the network please contact Brenda on

We are looking forward to celebrating the second RCN Nursing Support Worker’s (NSW) Day on 23 November. Look out for further information nearer the time. In the meantime, RCN reps at Belfast City Hospital are holding an information day for HCAs and nursing assistants on 5 October 2021 outside the Cancer Centre. Please drop by and see them from 9am until 2pm.
