Proud to support the Armed Forces Community

Armed Forces Community-header

Oxleas NHS Foundation trust provides a range of healthcare services, including community health care and specialist mental health services to people living in Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich. Our work is guided by four key values: we’re kind, we’re fair, we listen, we care.

In line with our values, we believe that members of our community who serve, or have served in the British Armed Forces and their families are owed a debt of gratitude for the sacrifices they have made for our country. They should experience no disadvantage in accessing our services and in certain circumstances, they should receive special consideration. Where barriers do exist, we are working hard to remove them, and for our work in this area we have been recognised as a Veteran’s Aware trust

Our commitment to you

We’re committed to continually improving the services and support we offer to serving personnel, reservists, veterans and their families by:

  • Identifying members of the military community using our services to make sure they receive treatment in line with the Armed Forces covenant 
  • Training our staff on the specific needs and culture of the Armed Forces community
  • Appointing Armed Forces champions to make sure we deliver on our promises
  • Acting as a forces-friendly employer by participating in a range of appropriate schemes
  • Building strong connections with military welfare services and charitable organisations to provide continuity of care
  • Asking for feedback to improve our services through our Armed Forces Community survey 

If you are accessing healthcare through Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, please let us know if you or a close family member has ever served in the Armed Forces, so we can help you get you the support you need.
