About the branch

South West Yorkshire Partnership Health UNISON branch is made of members in several different employers. The main employer being South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, however we also represent members in NHS Barnsley CCG, NHS Wakefield CCG, nursing homes in Wakefield and GP practices in Barnsley.

UNISON is the union for all members in health and social care.

We represent all staff groups and Occupational sectors at all the different grades. UNISON has partnership agreements with other trade unions; British Association of Occupational Therapists, Managers in Partnership, British Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists and the College of Operating Department Practitioners.

All members of the branch can attend branch meetings, vote and stand in branch elections and get involved in our campaigns and activities.

We are always looking for people who feel they can contribute to the branch and to helping other members. This could be a regular commitment or just the occasional hour or so. We also provide training courses and support for our reps and officers.

You can find a list of branch roles here, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to get involved.
