About Plymouth Health Branch

This Branch of the GMB is specifically for the NHS and Health Sector Care Workers in Plymouth, Devon & Cornwall, including contracted or private care providers.

Our Branch office is located in Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. Enter via level 6, escalate to level 9, exit the lift and turn right. Bingo!

The majority of our Branch members are employed at Derriford Hospital, however, about 20% are health service workers employed by Livewell SW, (Mount Gould Hospital) private care homes, community hospitals, local mental health services as well as in NHS Cornwall Hospitals.

The Branch Secretary works from the Branch Office on level 9 of Derriford Hospital (see Meet the Team page for details of all of our Branch Reps).

Branch office open hours, working days, Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm.

During Covid-19 we may not be available every day in the office but we will always be available by other means of communication.
