Silver lining for our Armed Forces Covenant

We’re delighted to announce that we have been presented with the Silver Award in the Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, marking our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

The silver award was presented to us at a prestigious ceremony held at the Cavalry and Guards Club in Piccadilly, London at the end of November.

It recognises the work we are doing to support members of the armed forces and their families in accessing timely healthcare and supporting the employment of ex-veterans.

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.

Iain Dimond, Chief Operating Officer, said: "We are delighted to have achieved our Silver Award, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to supporting our veterans and getting them the health support they need, when they need it."
