Nursing

UNISON Scotland campaigning for nurses and the wider health care team.

UNISON represents over 240,000 nurses, midwives and health visitors across the UK. We are committed to campaigning on behalf of the broad family of nursing and the wider health care team.

We have the largest team of national and regional officers who are experts and representatives of nurses.

Nursing the Nation 2020

During the week of 11 May, 2020 the union will be celebrating the work that nurses, midwives and nursing associates do every day to help the people of the UK.

We’re proud of the vital jobs our nurses, midwives and nursing associates do every day to help people. Nurses and midwives make a very real and vital contribution to the health of our nation and we want to celebrate that.
