Armed Forces Covenant

We have been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Silver Award in the national Employer Recognition Scheme.

The silver award follows our bronze award recognition which came earlier in the year, and recognises our ongoing commitment which has included the introduction of new referral criteria. The criteria ensures any veterans seeking treatment with us are identified as early as possible.

Our Commitment

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust will endeavour in our patients’ care services to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.

  • No member of the Armed Forces Community should face disadvantage when accessing services across the NHS. 
  • In some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.
