At the 2015 AGM, the branch held a listening exercise on priorities. The priorities and activity for us as a branch are:
Pay and Rewards
Lack of GP services
Staffing and skill mix
Quality Branch Activities
Stat and Man for independent workers
Availability of reps
More updates (member engagement)
The branch is looking for ways to move forward on all these issues and are very keen to tap into the talent of our large number of members so if you have a bright idea you would like support with or a workplace issue then please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see how we can help move forward.
