Veteran Aware Logo

Ashford and St. Peter's pledges to be a Veterans Aware Trust.

 

For accreditation we will:

  • provide leaflets and posters to veterans and their families explaining what to expect
  • train relevant staff to be aware of veterans’ needs and the commitments of the NHS under the Armed Forces Covenant
  • inform staff if a veteran or their GP has told the hospital they have served in the armed forces
  • ensure that members of the armed forces community do not face disadvantage compared to other citizens when accessing NHS services
  • signpost to extra services that might be provided to the armed forces community by a charity or service organisation in the trust
  • look into what services are available in their locality, which patients would benefit from being referred to
