The vast majority of nurses, midwives and nursing support workers go through their careers without ever needing the support of the RCN Legal Team.

With the largest in-house legal team of any trade union, here we explain some of how our members may need support and how we can help.


Wills and probate

You and your family and friends can also get help and advice from RCN Law with will writing, probate matters, setting up a trust or a lasting power of attorney. You can find out more information from the link below.

Don’t be a twit

The RCN Legal Team is seeing an increase in the number of X (formerly Twitter), Facebook and other social media posts that form part of cases against registrants.

You must be very careful never to mention your employer or colleagues in a way you would not feel confident to do in an open forum.

Also, you should never talk about patients, because you will be breaching confidentiality. One nurse posted about how she was up late, worse for wear and had to be at work in a few hours. The post was picked up by a patient’s family.
