Coronavirus Latest

The overwhelming majority of PCS members in the Health group are continuing to be able to work from home. This is more important than ever as we see infections and, sadly, deaths increase rapidly and the country moves into a second lockdown.

Any member of the PCS Health group who feels they are being unduly pressurised by their management to return to their workplace should contact PCS by emailing

PCS is determined to ensure our members are safe and remain safe as the pandemic continues. The safest place to be is at home.

The main other issue that PCS is currently dealing with in the Health group is the abolition of Public Health England and the creation of the National Institute for Health Protection. Massive uncertainty remains over the future of PHE staff especially in Health improvement. PCS is pressing PHE and DHSC management for as much information as possible. We have regular meetings with both employers on this issue and updates for members will be produced as soon as more information is available,
