We, at South King Street Medical Centre are proud to be an accredited Veteran Friendly GP Practice and to support our veteran community.
As a Veteran Friendly GP Practice we:
- Have a clinical lead for veteran health , who is supported by the whole Practice to improve veteran health services.
- Ask patients ‘Have you served in the Armed Forces?’ to help identify veteran patients
- Support veteran patients to access dedicated health services
- Undertake regular training and development to meet the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant and better understand the needs of veteran patients
If you are a veteran patient, please let us know that you have served so that we can make sure that we understand your health needs and ensure you are getting the best possible care.
