We understand that your needs can be different from other patients.
When registering with us for the first time, please make the Receptionist aware that you are a military veteran and we will update your records. If you have recently left the armed forces, it’s important to give us the paperwork that your military medical centre gave you, including any medical records as this will give us the information on your health and ensure that any ongoing care and treatment is continued.
By letting us know that you are a veteran, we will update your records to ensure that you are able to access dedicated services for those who have served in the armed forces. Veterans and their families, due to their military service, should not be disadvantaged. All veterans with health conditions that may be related to military service are entitled to be given priority treatment, subject to clinical need.
We have produced a leaflet with resources for your information. Please click here to access the leaflet
