Joint Unions Checklist for NHS Improvement pathology networks

19/03/2018 10:02:21

Stimulated by the considerable degree of anxiety arising from the NHSI project driving "hub and spoke" pathology consolidations across England the key unions serving staff in pathology - Unison, Unite & FCS - have issued the attached checklist. This draws on published experience of established, failed and developing networks, lessons expressed at successive ACB FiLM and other meetings and personal experience. We believe it represents some essential prerequisites for fair and equitable treatment of staff and to work towards clinically safe, resilient and effective pathology services as they change.

The unions and professional bodies each have their own policies regarding the NHSI proposals. Each developing network has its own local considerations. The production of the checklist does not imply endorsement of the NHSI initiatives.
