MiP National Committee By-elections

Tue 21 Nov 2017

Nominations open tomorrow for four by-elections to the National Committee, MiP's main policy making body.

MiP members elected their new national committee for 2018-19 earlier this autumn, and the committee will now hold by-elections for four remaining vacant seats:

  • Scotland (2nd Seat)
  • South Central
  • South East Coast
  • Wales (2nd Seat)

The national committee formulates MiP policies on healthcare, the NHS and workplace relations – including negotiations, and the representation, recruitment and organisation of MiP members. Committee members are ambassadors of MiP, representing the union on public platforms and talking up issues that matter to you, upholding MiP’s values and maintaining our political neutrality.

The national committee is made up of elected representatives from each geographical area of the UK with co-optees for any areas of healthcare not represented. There are two seats for Scotland, Wales and London, and one seat for each of the other English regions and for Northern Ireland. 

Nominations open on 22 November 2017 and an election will be held in any constituency where there are more nominations than seats. 

The full timetable for the by-elections is shown below. For further information, download our nomination and election process guide.
