UNISON and George Eliot Hospital celebrate historic twinning agreement

NSCAG News | on: Tuesday, 24 February 2015

The delegation from UNISON West Midlands Region and the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust, visiting Nicaragua from 15 - 23 February, have signed a historic twinning agreement with the Nicaraguan health union FETSALUD and the Nilda Patricia Hospital in Ciudad Sandino, Managua. This is the first ever twinning between hospitals in the UK and Nicaragua. The agreement affirms mutual support between the two unions and hospitals. Both sides have agreed to strengthen and develop the foundations first formed in the UK in 2014 and during this visit. In the agreement, they commit to learn together, share expertise and work to improve the quality of care in health services for patients and staff. The agreement will be further developed and given a more practical focus in the weeks ahead. A delegation from FETSALUD will visit the UK in April in order to have further discussions with the hospital; they will also attend UNISON's National Health Conference, 13-15 April in Liverpool. A full report on the delegation's visit will be posted on this website as soon as possible.
