Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was honoured to receive the coveted Silver Award through the Employer Recognition Scheme. The highly sought-after award is presented to organisations that provide fantastic opportunities and support for both Reservists and ex-Military personnel. 

The Trust is recognised as an organisation that prides itself on inclusivity and firmly believes that Military personnel, with their wide variety of skills, have an enormous amount to offer within a healthcare setting. 

Supportive environment
Former Sergeant and Head of IT at Yeovil Hospital, Jim Mills said: “Yeovil Hospital has been crucial in enabling me to find a new career using the skills I obtained from my time in the Army. The team has been nothing but supportive to me and my other Military colleagues regarding our wellbeing, our work patterns and our families.

The NHS is a broad, multidisciplinary team with a wide variety of roles, from medicine and patient care, to technology, administration and estates. At Yeovil Hospital we work just like one big team, with no one role able to work without the others. My skills are valued daily, and I am glad that I have the opportunity to put them to good use in such an important service.”
