Armed Forces

Accreditation logo

We are proud to be part of a scheme to support Armed Forces personnel as part of the Armed Forces Covenant, where the NHS has a duty to deliver on a number of health commitments:

  • The Armed Forces community should enjoy the same standard of, and access to healthcare as that received by any other UK citizen in the area they live.
  • Family members should retain their place on any NHS waiting list, if moved around the UK due to the service person being posted.
  • Veterans should receive priority treatment for a condition which relates to their service, subject to clinical need.
  • Those injured in service should be cared for in a way that reflects the nation’s moral obligation to them, by healthcare professionals who have an understanding of the Armed Forces culture.

If you have been a member of the armed forces please tell us so we can support you in the best way possible.
