We are working towards becoming a Veteran Aware Accredited Trust and a proud member of the Armed Forces Covenant Home - Armed Forces Covenant

As we are one of the Island's main healthcare providers, we recognise how important it is to drive improvements across the care we provide for people who serve or have served in the UK Armed Forces and their families. With over 14,000 veterans on the Island, the Veteran Aware accreditation will ensure that these people will be cared for by front line staff who have received training and education based on their specific needs. It will also mean that our staff can help to signpost them to other local support services.

Please let a member of our staff know if you or your spouse/partner has ever served in the UK Armed Forces so that we can best support your care needs. By recording you as veteran in your health care record we will help to ensure you are able to access specific veteran's health services, such as those for mental health, hearing loss and wheelchairs.

To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment, the Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you. It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society. The covenant focuses on helping members of the Armed Forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.
