NHS and wider health sector

We represent managers and other senior staff working in the NHS and the wider health sector through our joint venture with Unison, Managers in Partnership (MiP) .

Functioning as a national branch of Unison and a section of the FDA, MiP offers personal support, collective representation, a public voice and career development to more than 6,000 members across the public, private and voluntary sectors.

Through its nationwide network of full-time staff and trained volunteers, MiP works to defend and further the interests of managers across our health and care systems. It protects individual members during disputes with employers, ensuring that their rights are respected, and champions managers as a group – negotiating to improve their working lives and improving public understanding of the vital role they play in delivering and improving patient care.

MiP members include both clinical staff - matrons, nurse consultants, clinical leads and heads of service - and non-clinical health and care practitioners - estates and finance managers, directors and chief executives.

You can find out whether you’re eligible for membership on MiP’s dedicated website , and keep up with the latest news by following MiP on Twitter.
