Check Out Our New Veteran’s Section!

Posted by: jreeveseastwood - Posted on:

We at the North Arden PCN are proud that all three of our associated surgeries are veteran friendly accredited and are keen to support our Armed Forces community.

To this end we have introduced a new veteran’s section to our website, full of helpful information targeted at the health, wellbeing and support available for veteran’s.

The NHS has made a commitment to helping our veterans. All military veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS care (including hospital, primary or community care) for conditions associated to their time within the armed forces. However, this is always subject to clinical need and does not entitle you to jump the queue ahead of someone with a higher clinical need. There are also a wide range of charities and services dedicated to providing the support and care our military personnel deserve.

To take a look at our new veteran’s section please click on the link below.

If you are a military veteran registered with one of our practices, please click on the appropriate link below to fill out a short form to inform your surgery of your status. This will help your surgery to better accommodate your needs as a military veteran and signpost you to the services that will help you most.
