Supporting veterans and the armed forces community

Equality, diversity and inclusion

As part of the Veterans Covenant Healthcare Alliance (VCHA) we're proud to be a Veteran Aware hospital and have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. This means:

  • members of the armed forces community have the same access to our services as others
  • we give special treatment, if needed, for the injured or bereaved

For more information about the support we can offer members of the armed forces community, please email [email protected].

We recognise the value of serving personnel, reservists, veterans and their families and try to:

  • recruit service leavers, veterans and partners of members of the armed forces. We hold a silver award in the defence employers recognition scheme
  • provide armed forces awareness training for staff
  • support our staff reservists, cadet leaders and fundraisers for armed forces charities
  • mark national events such as Armed Forces Day, Reserves Day and Remembrance Day
