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.
