Royal College of Nursing Activist Badges

Royal College of Nursing Activist Badges

Three different badges issued by the Royal College of Nursing to their activists for their roles. The RCN finally became a Union during the early 70s and first set up a series of workplace representatives known as Stewards.The first badge is based up the sunburst members badge with the addition of a bar bearing Steward.The introduction of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 also legislated for Representatives to address safety at work and the RCN had a very active and influential Health and Safety committee(I am biased as I served on it!).These versions of the Hands badges were introduced after 1984 for Steward and Safety Representative roles. A nice trio of badges not seen too often.

United Kingdom Nurses Registration Badge and miniature

United Kingdom Nurses Registration Badge and miniature

These are examples of a privately purchased Nurses badge which is often mistakenly cited as being issued by the United Kingdom Central Council for Nursing and Midwifery(UKCC) after 1983.When this body replaced the GNC for England & Wales it controversially decided not to issue a registration badge, despite much protest.A number of companies decided to fulfil this desire for a badge and came up with the UK Nurses Badge which could be purchased by Qualified staff.They were available in a standard Uniform & a small Dress badge.They were bought in relatively small numbers and are therefore scarce today. This is a full size badge along with its matching miniature
Size 41mm and 25mm
