Northern Ireland Region: Federation of Clinical Scientists (FCS)

The Federation represents the Trade Union interests of Clinical Scientists in the NHS and other related areas, and is a certificated trade union with full national recognition and negotiating rights. In the Northern Ireland context this includes a seat on the NI Trade Union Forum and Trust Trade Union Fora. The Federation represents all clinical scientist members, including trainees. It is the 'principal executive committee' in industrial law terms. The federation is responsible to its membership for all matters involving industrial relations and conditions of employment.
