Veterans and Ex-Forces

 

Veteran Friendly Practice Certificate

Whilst many aspects of the health needs of armed services veterans and ex-forces personnel are the same as for the general public, there are sometimes significant differences, particularly in relation to conditions attributable to service life and the impact upon families. These differences can be reflected in the way in which healthcare is delivered, the range and types of some specific services provided and the long-term impact upon patients and families.
