We are an Armed Forces Veteran Friendly Accredited GP Practice
This means that we have a dedicated clinician who has a specialist knowledge of service related health conditions and Veteran specific health services. This is important in helping Veterans to get the best care and treatment.
We are also signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant. We obtained the Bronze Award in 2021 and have now obtained the Silver Award in June 2022. We are working towards obtaining the Gold Award.
If you are a veteran, please let your GP know to help ensure you are getting the best possible care.
