About the Branch

Our StructureSuffolk Area Health Branch support Unison health care members across Suffolk. Our branch covers a wide area but is structured with a single overall branch committee. We are based at West Suffolk Hospital but we encourage Suffolk Area Health Branch members from any employer to become involved, so please contact us if you are interested in becoming a Unison Rep.
Local ConvenorWest Suffolk Foundation Trust has an elected representative (Local Convenor) who attends the relevant Joint Negotiating Committee or Joint Staff Forum (known as the Trust Council). This is where your views are put forward to your employer and where negotiation and consultation takes place which may affect your terms and conditions.
StewardsThe Branch Stewards represent and protect members’ interests through negotiations and consultations with employers. This includes individual representation when members need us. If you are interested in becoming a Steward please contact the branch.
