Around 400 UNISON members and their families are on the train (15 members from my branch). Many others are travelling on coaches or making their own way up.
North West region will be greeting us at Manchester Piccadilly and guiding us to the form up at Liverpool Road. The march is due to start at 12.15 and rally at Whitworth Park.Check details at www.NHS299.org.
I can't believe that I am going to two Party conferences in just over a week but I doubt I will be speaking at this one!
