Veteran Friendly GP Practice Accreditation in Wales

GP practices in Wales can become accredited veteran-friendly practices and provide specialist care for current and former military personnel through a programme introduced by Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW).

This programme enables GP practices to sign up voluntarily to undertake specialist training on veterans’ health and wellbeing and promoting fair treatment and respect for people who have served with the armed forces, and their families.

GP surgeries joining the scheme will routinely ask new patients if they or their family members have served, or are currently serving, with the British armed forces. Practices will need to stay up to date with the latest training and guidance on veterans’ health, so they can support their patients’ health most effectively.

To register to become a Veteran Friendly Accredited Practice, GP practices should email
