Northern Ireland Assembly

RCN Northern Ireland works in partnership with all Northern Ireland political parties in order to promote the interests of nurses and nursing and to campaign on health issues.

We do this through regular meetings with the health minister, officials from the DHSSPS and members of the Northern Ireland Assembly.

We provide formal and informal briefings to local politicians, work closely with the Health Committee of the Northern Ireland Assembly, and attend the annual conferences of the Northern Ireland political parties.

RCN members play a leading role in lobbying and influencing on behalf of nursing; development opportunities are provided by RCN Northern Ireland in order to support members in these activities.
