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.

NHS Employers

We are the employers’ organisation for the NHS in England. We help employers to develop a sustainable workforce, improve staff experience and be the best employers they can be.

Our practical resources and expert insights help make sense of current and emerging healthcare issues, to keep employers up to date with the latest thinking and ensure they are informed and equipped to support the NHS workforce. We generate opportunities to network and share knowledge and we actively seek the views of workforce leaders to make sure their voice is front and centre of health policy and practice.

We also lead the national collective relationships with trade unions on behalf of the NHS and the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

Locum’s Nest

We are not an agency! Locum’s Nest is the staff bank management app created by and for doctors. Our software connects healthcare professionals to locum work in NHS Foundation Trusts, GP Federations, Primary Care Networks and practices. The clever technology revolutionises the formation and maintenance of staff bank, meaning an ever-increasing pool of local, highly qualified staff constantly at the Trust or practice disposal. This leads to a significantly increased shift fill rates of over 90% and 100% attendance rate. Locum’s Nest is currently live in over 20 hospitals across all specialities and grades of doctors, over 100 GP Practices and has over 18,000 doctors on the platform. Our partner Trusts have posted and matched over 80,000 shifts since we launched and in one Trust reported savings of £3 million in the first 10 months of launching. Forget agencies - Locum's Nest allows Primary and Secondary Care organisations to take back control of staffing and avoid the inefficient, ineffective and expensive locum agency middleman.
