Welcome to our website. We are a Health Care Sector UNISON branch with around 2500 members most of whom are employed by Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust. Our other members are employed by a wide range of mental health care employers across Greater Manchester including Independent Hospitals, Nursing Homes and GP Practices, or are Retired Members or Unemployed Members from the branches which merged to form this Greater Manchester Mental Health Branch.
We hope that you find this web site both helpful and of interest. We wish to provide information about the branch and how to access help when you need to, as well as having links to UNISON’s National and Regional Websites, and to organisations campaigning about the NHS and other issues.
In addition we hope to keep you up to date with activities and priorities of the branch. We see this branch as an active, campaigning UNISON branch and hope to provide you with details of upcoming events we will be attending as well as reports, links and photographs as we develop this website.
There is a contact form available for you to contact the website administrators. There are further contact details of branch officers and stewards under the ‘Branch Activists’ tab.
