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.

Veterans’ healthcare – Armed forces healthcare

 

NHS England has confirmed that despite the Government announcement (27 January) relating to face coverings no longer being mandatory in public places, the UK Health Security Agency’s Infection Prevention Control guidance remains in place in GP Surgeries.

This means that we will still require patients to wear face coverings (facemasks or face shields), to maintain social distance and use hand sanitiser to enter the practice building. As we are a higher risk environment, continuing these measures will help to ensure that we keep all our patients and staff safe. Please help us by wearing a mask or face covering when you visit our practice.

Thank you for your support.
