The NHS has a range of dedicated services for Veterans. This includes the Veterans’ Trauma Network, which provides care and treatment to those who have been injured during their time in Service.
The service is available in health centres across England with Veterans receiving care from Military and civilian clinicians who are experts in treating trauma injuries. As part of this, the Veterans’ Trauma Network works closely with Defence Medical Services, national centres of clinical expertise, the NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service and key Military charities to makes sure patients have a personalised care plan in place. As families and carers can be seriously impacted when their loved ones are injured, they are also supported to access services that may help them.
