Supporting our members every step of the way

Every year hundreds of our members face employment problems such as redundancy, bullying, discrimination, complaints, disciplinary issues, and unfair dismissals, redeployments or demotions. MiP's advice and support team, including our network of national officers, is here to help you with advice, information, advocacy and hands-on representation.


In need of support?
Step 1: check our Advice & Information pages

If you have an employment problem, please first read through the relevant page of our Advice & Information section for guidance on how to react to emerging problems. This may help you to respond in the correct way until our team can provide more advice.

Step 2: contact our member advice co-ordinator

If you still need support, please get in touch with our member advice co-ordinator:

  07813 721969

If we can’t answer the phone or email immediately, we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Our member advice co-ordinator will talk to you about the problem and either help you there and then, or refer you to one of our national officers.

Do I qualify for full support?

To qualify for our full package of support, you must have been a member at least four weeks before the issue arises. If you’ve been a member for a shorter period, we can provide advice and guidance but not full representation.

Recently transferred from UNISON?
If you recently transferred from UNISON, we and UNISON will consider between us who’s best placed to represent you. Meanwhile, please get in touch with your MiP national officer and explain the situation.
A probation period in a new job is usually seen as a formality. But if things don’t work out, it could pose a significant risk to your NHS career.
