The Health Division represents workers across a wide variety of employments, including the HSE, hospitals, section 38’s and 39’s, mental health facilities, disabilities and community services. Within these are clerical admin staff, health and social care professionals, and other health related grades.

Health is IMPACT’s largest division with approximately 30,000 members, and 35 branches.

The main issues arising in this division are around the restructuring and reconfiguration of the health services and their delivery, sleepovers, twilight payments, employment rights, standardisation of annual leave and regularisation of actors.
