Ward nurses at Manor Hospital, Walsall

Registered nurses and midwives

UNISON represents nurses and midwives in all settings across the United Kingdom.

Registered nurses and midwives are on the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register and abide by the NMC Code of Conduct.

Registered nurses and midwives are a major and vital section of the health workforce and work in a range of settings from acute care to communities to government.

We represent those in all settings, including public health, district nursing and health visiting.

We have dedicated Professional Services Unit which offers advice and representation in cases involving issues with the NMC.

We lobby on behalf of nurses at a national level and are leading campaigns challenging racism in the NHS, calling for safe staffing levels, and negotiating for better pay.

We have education and training opportunities for members and a range of interesting ways for nurses and midwives to be involved. We always welcome and support nurses and midwives who want to become reps in their workplace and advocates for their colleagues.
