Military Veterans

Are You A Military Veteran?


A "veteran" is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day. There are around 1.85 million veterans in the UK.


When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS. It is highly important for continuing healthcare that you register with an NHS GP and remember to tell them you have served.


Telling the practice about your veteran status will trigger the transfer of your full medical documentation from the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to your GP and enable you to benefit from veteran-specific services like prosthetics and mental health support.


Please notify us if you are a military veteran.
