Ken Livingston supporting NHS pensions at UNISON London Health Service conference

Picture is from last weeks London UNISON Health Training Conference in Congress House. Labour London Mayor Candidate Ken Livingstone (double click picture to bring up detail) was one of the speakers. I missed seeing
Ken speak but the feed back from those who did was very positive. This regional health training conference has grown in size every year. There were a number of other speakers and expert panels. Including a guest from the RCN.

Protecting NHS (and other public sector workers) Pensions was obviously a key issue. UNISON Head of Pensions , Glyn Jenkins gave a detailed presentation on what is at stake. While former Bromley branch secretary turned regional officer, Micky Crouch, gave a humorous and well received talk on the vital importance of recruitment. BTW It was of course good for all of us to see the London Health SGE member, NHS nurse Mike Davey, (see picture bottom right) being his usual bright, cheerful (and awake) self at this event.
