The NHS Credit Union was started in November 1998 by founder member Robert Rae in his role as UNISON Branch Secretary of the Southern General Hospital, Glasgow.
In its first 12 months, the credit union issued 260 loans with a total value of just over £123,000. The largest single loan was for £2,000.
Since then, we have expanded dramatically, and from our Glasgow office, we now offer a wide range of financial services to more than 18,500 NHS employees and their family members, as well as NHS contractors, from Shetland to Sheffield.
The credit union is run by a board of volunteer directors, who oversee a staff of 18 people. We are authorized by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.
Our registered name and address is NHS (Scotland and North England) Credit Union Ltd. Pavilion 3B, Moorpark Court, 9 Dava Street, Glasgow, G51 2JA.
