Healthcare for Military Veterans

Military Veterans – Priority NHS Care

The UK government has pledged to support Military Veterans with priority NHS Care.

Who is defined as a veteran? A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day in the regular or reservist forces. There are around 4.5 million veterans in the UK.

All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS hospital care for any condition as long as it is related to their service, regardless of whether or not they receive a war pension.
