RCN launches election manifesto

The RCN is calling for the regulation of healthcare assistants and for every nurse and healthcare worker to have protected training time as part of their continuous professional development.

The request is one of a number of commitments the RCN is seeking from the political parties vying to form the governments in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Others include:

  • All healthcare organisations should be required to hold a register of staff concerns that must be reported to their board regularly and made available to the public.
  • The RCN wants to see regular staffing reviews, which are then reported to trust boards, to guarantee safe staffing numbers and the highest level of quality of care for patients.
  • The RCN is calling for every patient with a long-term condition to have guaranteed access to specialist nursing care.
