The West Midlands region is one of the nine geographical areas of England into which the RCN is organised. We serve around 40,000 RCN members who work in the Birmingham and Black Country conurbations and the surrounding areas of Coventry, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Our RCN branches
