Sir Michael Parkinson to speak at RCN Congress

  • Comment

Broadcaster and journalist Sir Michael Parkinson is to address delegates at this year’s RCN congress, the college announced today.

Following the 2008 launch of the RCN’s dignity campaign, the college have sought to make dignified patient care a number one priority for nursing staff.

Sir Michael, who was last year appointed as the government’s dignity ambassador, will talk to RCN members about the importance of maintaining patient dignity while delivering high quality nursing care.

RCN general secretary, Peter Carter, said having Sir Michael speak at congress will be ‘an honour’ and will ‘add to the sense of occasion.’

RCN congress 2009 will be held at Harrogate International Centre, Harrogate, from 10 to 14 May. Those wishing to attend should email the RCN press office at
