Veteran friendly accredited GP practices

Accredited GP practices and where to find them - to date we have trained 32 GPs, 12 GP practices have joined the accreditation scheme and 35 GP administration staff have been trained as mentors to help those in need.  

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health or wellbeing, expert help is available including a new emergency high intensity service for veterans.  It is available to those who are due to leave the Armed Forces, have just left, or left the Armed Forces many years ago.

You’ll speak to people who:

  • understand the Armed Forces and military life
  • are either from the Armed Forces community or highly experienced in working with serving personnel, reservists, veterans, and their families
  • will work with you to make sure you get the right type of specialist care, support, and treatment
