United Kingdom Nurses Registration badge
This is an issued example 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 issued to M Mary Smith

General Nursing Council for England & Wales,Chrome SRN,RMN,RNMD Badge
An unusual triple registered Male Nurses badge from the General Nursing Council of England & Wales.The chrome and enamel rose shaped badge has the usual image of the goddess Hygeia flanked by two sheaves of Daffodils.With a button hole back fixing to the rear it is engraved for SG Badland SRN 1220 24.3.48, RMN 9918 27.2.48,RNMD 586 23.4.48, thus receiving three Qualifications in the space of two months!
The registers show this as being Sydney George Badland.His SRN training was an intensive course from 1947-48 at St Mary's Hospital Portsmouth.His RMN and RNMD were both earned by RMPA Examination but unfortunately the locations of training cannot be confirmed.At that time Male nurses were recorded on a supplementary part of the register, hence the low SRN Number.
In good condition,Height 27mm
I have since found out that this gentleman finished his career as Chief Male Nursing Officer for the North Wales Hospital in Denbigh.

UK Nursing & Midwifery Association,Honorary Members Badge
The UKNMA was an independent organisation set up in 2000 to cater to the demand amongst many for a badge to reflect their qualification.
With the demise of the general nursing council in 1983, the decision was made by the UKCC, it's successor body, not to issue an equivalent Hygeia type badge.To meet this demand a number of different private bodies issued a certificated badge upon registration and payment.
The design was based upon the figure of Hygeia topped by the lamp of learning and knowledge.The usual version was a red cross but a blue pendant version was produced for Honorary members.These were intended to honour nurses or midwives making an outstanding contribution to the advancement of the Profession.This is one of those but is unnamed so possibly not issued.
Height 49mm
