Am I Eligible?

Group of healthcare professionals

Membership of Managers in Partnership is open to everyone who fulfils three criteria. You must:

  • Work in a health or care organisation within the UK;
  • Earn a basic salary of at least £40,000 per annum;
  • Have a management responsibility.

We accept members in full-time and fixed-term employment, interims, consultants and the self-employed; those working in NHS bodies, in private and voluntary sector health and care providers, and in parts of local and central government; and in both clinical and non-clinical roles.

So MiP members work in huge variety of roles, employers, and locations across the UK – our Who are our Members? pages help to profile our membership, and explain how we serve people in various professions, organisations, regions and nations. 

All of our members are entitled to specialist, expert advice and support addressing the risks and challenges of life in the UK’s health and care services, as well as assistance with career development and a wide range of member benefits. Our Why You Should Join page provides an overview of the support we provide; or you can explore our offer in more detail in the Our Services pages. 

If you have any questions about these criteria, please contact staff at our head office who will be happy to help.



Need help but not a member?
To qualify for full representation, you must have been an MiP member for at least 13 weeks at the point the issue arises. However, if you join now you’ll be entitled to some telephone advice from our expert team immediately – and protected in the future, should new problems arise once that 13-week period has elapsed.

Recently transferred from UNISON?

SPECIAL REPORT: A small but growing number of NHS managers are being diagnosed with workplace PTSD. We speak to three MiP members who paid a high price for the NHS’s failure to tackle toxic workplace bullying.
