RCGP Veteran Friendly Practices Programme

Many people in our Armed Forces and Veterans community are likely to be affected by the current situation in Afghanistan. In the lead up to Remembrance Day on 11 November 2021, show your commitment to improving the care of your veteran patients by joining over 1050 practices in England currently signed up to the RCGP veteran-friendly accreditation programme.

We offer training and guidance to GPs and practice teams to support veterans and their families. Becoming a veteran friendly accredited practice is a simple on-line process and helps to raise awareness, improve understanding and better equip and facilitate General Practice teams in their duty of care to veterans.

There are an estimated 2.4 million veterans in the UK, some of whom have complex needs. There are veteran-specific services tailored towards this potentially vulnerable patient group. Veterans may also be entitled to priority treatment for conditions related to military service.
