Welcome to UNISON Somerset Health Branch
We represent over 1,700 health workers across Somerset formed in 2009 with a merger of Taunton & Somerset Health branch with East Somerset Health branch. The merger has enabled us to employ a branch administrator and have a branch office to work more effectively in working for members.
How we work
Somerset is a big place, fifty miles from east to west, so it makes sense for decisions to be made as close to workplaces as possible. Somerset PCT, Taunton & Somerset and Yeovil District members each elect a Lead Steward for their area and operate as a mini branch.
Openness and Transparency
Every UNISON member can and should have full information about what the branch is doing on their behalf. Every UNISON member can get as involved in the union as they want to be. As this year progresses we will be adding more and more to the site so check back often.
