A Veteran is someone who has served in the British Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) for at least one day. Veterans also include any member of the Merchant Marine who has served in a War Zone

This means that as part of the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have dedicated members of staff who support Veterans with specific health services. This is important in helping ex-forces patients to get the best care and treatment.

Please see information concerning healthcare under the Armed Forces Covenant that can be accessed by ex-service personnel.

If you are a Veteran and would like this annotated on your medical record, please let us know.
