Doctors in Unite

Become a member of Doctors in Unite by joining Unite the union.

Doctors in Unite is the home for progressive doctors who want to make a difference.

We hold to the founding principles of the NHS as Nye Bevan intended and campaign against privatisation and unsafe workplaces.

We stand in solidarity with other health workers, at home and abroad, in their struggles and fight for migrants’ rights.

We have been particularly active during the COVID pandemic, lobbying hard for a community-based test, track, isolate and support system.


Doctors currently in work join Unite as working members. You will be given the choice between basic or enhanced membership on the Unite membership form. 

Basic membership includes Unite legal aid, 24 hour legal helpline access, and dispute & funerary benefits. Enhanced membership offers extra financial protection including incapacity support, maternity/paternity benefits, fatal accident cover, and disability & convalescence support.

Most of our members opt for enhanced membership.
