Portcullis Surgery is proud to be an Armed Forces Veteran friendly Accredited GP practice
Regardless of when you left the military, please tell us that you’ve served in the UK Armed Forces. This will help our practice to better understand any military related health conditions that you may have and ensure that you are referred, where appropriate, to dedicated services for veterans.
Email us with this information so we can identify you as a veteran in our records.
This includes the specialist mental and physical health services, Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service and the Veterans Trauma Network.
When using these services, you will be able to speak to people who:
• understand the Armed Forces and military life
• are either from the Armed Forces community or highly experienced in working with serving personnel, reservists, veterans and their families
• will work with you to make sure you get the right type of specialist care, support, and treatment
• work closely with a range of organisations and charities, including military charities, to support your wider health and wellbeing needs.
If you’ve recently left the forces, it is important to give your GP the paperwork that your military medical centre gave you, including any medical records. This will help to make sure your military health record transfers to your NHS health record. This will also give your GP information on your health and ensure that any ongoing care and treatment is continued.
