The NHS Credit Union was started in November 1998. Founder member Robert Rae had started the ball rolling about 18 months earlier in his role as UNISON Branch Secretary of the Southern General Hospital Branch. With the support of the trade unions and the employer, Southern General NHS Trust, the original volunteers set about establishing the Credit Union. The credit union began its life operating from a nurse’s bedroom in Glasgow’s Southern General Hospital in 1998.
Since then, your Credit Union has grown steadily, reaching a number of landmarks along the way, from opening our office at the Southern General and employing our first staff member, to developing to cover all NHS employees and their family members across the whole of Scotland and the North of England It now offers financial services to more than 11,500 members and looks after savings in excess of £12.6m.
2015 13,000 health workers and their families now trust us with their savings – which total just over £15million – and that number is growing at a remarkable rate.
In 2016 the credit union was officially awarded Fairbanking Mark a five star rating to their personal loan products
