Make sure the next government understands why nursing counts
The general election has come at a critical time for nursing staff, patients and their families.
There is a real crisis in the NHS and our social care services across the UK; shifts are chronically understaffed and the resources needed to provide safe and effective care aren’t always available.
We’re asking all Prospective Parliamentary Candidates (PPCs) to demonstrate their commitment to nursing by becoming an RCN Nursing Champion and give nursing staff in their constituency a voice in Parliament.
You can help us by emailing your PPC today. Emailing them is easy – all you need to do is fill in your details on the right and hit ‘Email my PPCs’. You’ll then see prepopulated letters for each of the candidates running in your constituency which you can send.
It’s time to raise the alarm on why nursing counts this election.
