MiP Committee Elections 2017

Mon 17 Jul 2017

Nominations open on 25 August for elections to the national committee, MiP's main policy making body.

MiP will be holding elections this autumn for a new national committee to take office for two years from 1 January 2018. 

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 25 August and an election will be held in any constituency where there are more nominations than seats. The new committee will elect a chair and vice chairs at its first meeting early in 2018.

The full timetable for the elections is shown below. Nomination forms and further details are available from the national committee section of the MiP website.
