Branch and UNISON Scotland Press Releases

10 July 2018



About 50 people enjoyed a family fun-day run by UNISON to celebrate 70 years of the NHS.  The party took place at County Community Hospital in Invergordon on Saturday afternoon – despite a certain football match taking place at the same time!


Families enjoyed the lovely weather, and made the best of the attractions on offer, which included a magician, face-painting, and the bouncy castles.


UNISON’s Vice Chair, Anne Campbell, who organised the event said “It was a great way to mark the NHS 70th birthday.  It was a sunny day full of fun, and the free ice cream went down particularly well.”

Help UNISON celebrate the NHS’s 70th birthday


Our NHS is 70 years old this month and to celebrate UNISON Highland Healthcare Branch have organised a family fun session in the grounds of County Community Hospital Invergordon.   This is free for the children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of UNISON members.


Branch Secretary, Janette McQuiston, said “We think it’s really important to celebrate the 70th birthday of this vital public service, which has been a part of all our lives for a long time now, but is very much still alive and kicking!  We wanted to celebrate and mark this important anniversary in a fun way.  There are UNISON NHS 70th birthday cakes being shared with staff in a number of different wards and hospitals in the NHS Highland area, but we also wanted a focussed event for members and their families.  Good weather is guaranteed!”


The fun starts at 2.00 pm until 4.00 pm on Saturday 7 July and we have a great afternoon planned, which will include:


Bouncy castles

Children’s magician

Face painting

Party food

Soft drinks for adults

Birthday cake


Tickets are available from Anne.campbell8@nhs.net  or 07818 002374.


Keep your ticket to swap for a free ice cream from the Alness ice cream van.
