Nearly half a million UNISON members work in health care in the NHS and for organisations providing NHS services in all four countries of the UK.
We recognise and defend the rights of all workers in the health service. By working together within UNISON, health care workers are better able to fight for change.
UNISON is one of the UK’s largest trade unions, serving more than 1.3 million members. We represent full-time and part-time staff who provide public services, although they may be employed in both the public and private sectors.
