Cumbria branch is your voice in the RCN 

If you are an RCN member and you work in Cumbria, you are automatically a member of Cumbria branch. 

As well as sending delegates to RCN's annual Congress, the branch has representation on the RCN's regional board.  

We are a forum in which you can discuss issues that affect nursing staff in Cumbria. We can also signpost you towards a number of career development and training opportunities. 

We are currently looking for local RCN members to get involved with future events, including campaigns. Please get in touch if you would like to get involved. 

Your branch president is Ella Cullen; your chair is Karen Dutton, your secretary is Rachel Ridley and your treasurer is Lynda High.

Cumbria branch meetings 

As a member working in Cumbria you are invited to attend our meetings. There will be a learning event open to all members from 10.30 am to 12.00 pm, followed by lunch, before each meeting takes place from 12:30 pm until 2:30 pm. The next meeting will be our AGM on 8 November
