The RCN parliamentary team works closely with MPs, Peers and civil servants to promote the interests of nursing staff in Westminster.

Through regular engagement in the form of meetings, briefings, seminars and oral and written evidence to parliamentary committees we are able to advocate our members views to our key political stakeholders.

Political engagement

The RCN provides expert advice to parliamentarians and civil servants developing healthcare policies through a number of ways:

  • Bills
  • Select Committees
  • All-Party Parliamentary Groups
  • Parliamentary Briefings.

We also attend all of the major UK party conferences and you can see what we got up to by going to our party conference pages.

Contact your MP

If you have a concern which you would like to raise with your Member of Parliament you can write, email or attend a surgery with your MP. 

You can find out who the Member of Parliament is for your area by going to the "Find your MP" feature, which is available on the website: www.parliament.uk.
