Unison Overseas Nurses
Welcome to Unison Overseas Nurses Network and this information
pack that we have for you. You should have in this pack:
- A Mapping exercise
(word doc - download by clicking here) that I hope
that you will fill it in to help us find the information
that is most useful to you. It should take you no more
than 5 minutes to do.
- An information sheet, a live working document, that
is the starting point and I hope that you can and will
contribute to it now and in the future to benefit everyone.
- An information sheet on work permit that was produce
with the Ethnic Minorities Law Centre.
- Our Newsletter that give you some of the latest news
Unison Overseas Nurses Network was set up by Unison over
2 years ago in recognition of the needs of the overseas
health workers in Scotland. We started with 6 members and
now we have over 400 all over Scotland. The Network was
set up as an information point, a social contact and information
exchange point for us all, so that we can learn from each
other. Being an overseas nurse myself I missed my entire
network in my home country and I hope that this network
can support us to build new networks and new friendship
in this country.
Our next network meeting will be on the
1st Dec 2005, at UNISON,
14 West Campbell Street,
From 7pm to 10pm.
We will have speakers that are of interest to us all, in
the past we have speaker from the NMC, Ethnic Minorities
Law Centre on work permit, training opportunities from the
WEA and on Agenda for Change.
To get more information and if you are interested in coming

We welcome everyone, union members and non-union members.
