UNISON

UNISON is the UK’s largest healthcare union and its members include nurses, midwives, health visitors, paramedics, cleaners, healthcare assistants, porters, caterers, medical secretaries, as well as clerical, administrative, scientific and technical staff.

The union's One Team campaign aims to promote the message that everyone who works in the NHS is valued, no matter what role they fulfil. The campaign aims to raise the profile of vital members of staff who are often overlooked, and UNISON is proud to be sponsoring the Our Health Heroes operational services award to recognise the amazing work support staff do every day.
