UNISON National Community Seminar 2015: Day 2

Day 2 of the national seminar started off with more workshops and reporting back. Then after morning break the plenary session with West Midlands Regional Head of Community, Andrew Johnson, explaining in a lucid and comprehensive way the new Government regulations on  commissioning of health and social care services.

Now this is possibly not what most people want to hear on a Saturday morning but it is for Unison Branches who have members terms and conditions at risk from Commissioners, who think that you can provide quality care services to the vulnerable on the cheap.

After a question and answer session, my fellow Community Branch secretary, Chris Durnall, thanked Andrew for his years of service to the union since he will be retiring shortly. A nice touch I thought.

The seminar then finished and after lunch the Community National conference began.
