Burnley Wood Medical Centre is an accredited Veteran Friendly GP Practice.
We are proud to support our Armed Forces community. Our accreditation shows we can deliver the best possible care and treatment for patients who have served in the armed forces.
As a Veteran Friendly GP Practice we:
- Have a clinical lead for veteran health: Nurse Helen
- Ask patients ‘Have you served?’ to identify veteran patients
- Support veteran patients to access dedicated health services
- Undertake specialist training to meet the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant
Let a member of staff know if you, or your spouse/partner, have ever served in the UK armed forces. This will help us best support your care needs.
The Royal College of General Practitioners runs the scheme in partnership with NHS England.
