MILITARY VETERANS PAGE
We are an Armed Forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice since January 2021.
The NHS has a duty to deliver on a number of health commitments in relation to the Armed Forces community (service personnel (regular and reserves), their families and veterans), which are set out in the Armed Forces Covenant and the NHS Constitution.
Visit the Armed Forces Covenant for more information.
This is recognised in the NHS Constitution, which states 'the NHS will ensure that in line with the Armed Forces Covenant, those in the Armed Forces, reservists, their families and veterans are not disadvantaged in accessing health services in the area they reside'.

It should be recorded in your GP records if you have military service yourself or you have someone in your household who is currently serving. If you feel this needs adding to your record please let us know.
