Staff at HYLTON MEDICAL GROUP take a proactive approach to identify ex-service personnel in order to ensure they are managed appropriately (including priority access where relevant under the Armed Forces Covenant).

To this support this, we will raise awareness of the issues faced by ex-service personnel with all staff within the practice.

Kelly & Samantha have been nominated as practice champions and first port of call for all signposting.

HMG Veterans Policy

* Once personnel have been identified offer Veterans pack
* Discuss at meetings how best to promote awareness
* Add questions on New patient check template (already on registration forms)
* Ask the question at each contact – start with 21-24 yr old co-hort
* Ask ad-hoc at appointments, collecting prescriptions, opportunistically when attending/calling for other
* Add this action sheet to the “desktop info packs” for all admin users to use

Please contact us if you are or have ever served in HM Forces.

Sunderland Armed Forces Network has a wealth of information and we have had very positive feedback from those we have referred onto their service.
