As many of you know, I started my nursing career in the Royal Navy and I have always maintained a keen personal interest in the armed forces, not least because my husband is still serving. But I am not the only veteran who is also a member of Team ASPH and we also have a number of reservists, who we support when they take part in operations in this country and abroad and who bring great skills, experiences, learning and leadership to bear in the work we do here at ASPH together.
The NHS and Armed Forces have been working together, supported by NHS Employers, to strengthen relationships, share learning and career opportunities as well as thinking about how to support the delivery of healthcare to veterans.

All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS care (including hospital, primary or community care) for conditions associated with their time within the armed forces (service-related). You can read more about that here.
