Improving Job Evaluation for Nurses and Midwives Webinar

Date:  25 January 2024

Time:  2.00pm – 4.30pm

Job evaluation is central to ensuring NHS jobs are fairly graded and paid in an equal way. Yet too often, nurses and midwives are not having their work fairly recognised.

UNISON is currently supporting the national NHS Job Evaluation Group (JEG) to review nursing and midwifery profiles to ensure they are fit for purpose. We are also launching campaigns in branches to organise nurses and midwives collectively to ensure you are graded right.

  • Join this seminar to hear from UNISON leaders and job evaluation experts.
  • Learn more about job evaluation and how nurses and midwives can make sure you are graded right.
  • Contribute your experiences and expertise to our campaign to get nurses and midwives graded right.

Thousands of nurses from overseas are being recruited to work in the UK. It’s important that they join UNISON to get access to all the support and help we can provide.

It’s always a challenge for health branches to meet and recruit new members.

This month’s webinar is on Wednesday 31 January from 7.00-8.30pm and will involve experienced UNISON reps, diasporic organisation leads and current overseas nursing members so that new overseas nurses can find out more about the union and have their questions answered.

Effective Nursing and Midwifery Regulation

Date:  20 February 2024

Time:  2.00pm – 4.30pm

Effective professional regulation is central to the provision of safe, kind and high-quality patient care.

Many nurses, midwives and nursing associates only think about the NMC at revalidation or when the time comes to hand over the annual registration fee.

But the NMC sets our professional code, determines the educational standards for our professions and takes action to protect the public when an individual’s fitness to practice is called into question.

Now the Department of Health is revising the legislation which sets out how healthcare regulators such as the NMC operate.

It’s a critical time for nursing registrants in UNISON to make your views on regulation known.

  • You’ll hear from experts at the NMC and UNISON’s own professional services unit
  • Contribute your expertise and experiences of dealing with registration, revalidation and fitness to practice
  • Join the debate on how to improve professional regulation for nurses, midwives and nursing associates
