Veteran Friendly Practice

armed forces

We are an Armed Forces Veteran Accredited practice and have processes in place to help all current and ex-service men and women.  Please let us know if you are an ex-service man or woman so that we can annotate your record and provide you access to any services.

The Veterans Gateway has now been made available via an App. Based on your location, you can access the support you need with finances, housing, employment, relationship, physical and mental health, and more.  The directory, which is intuitive and easy to use, groups all NHS facilities across the country, and over 2,000 charitable organisations. You can either use the map tool to look for organisations in your area, or search by name, post code, or descriptive words (e.g. financial support).  There is a range of Covid-19 advice available through the app.

Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service

The reports and images of the atrocities unfolding in the Ukraine over the past weeks may be “triggering” in those who have served. Some may find the news about the current conflict overwhelming. Recognition and awareness of this is important in providing appropriate care and support for our veteran patients. Veterans who find their mental health and wellbeing affected by the war can seek specialist support through Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service and the Veterans’ Gateway.
