The NHS has launched a questionnaire and series of virtual events to explore how it can improve health and wellbeing support for serving, reserve and veteran families in England.
Whilst most Armed Forces families enjoy healthy lives, the unique circumstances of military life, such as moving home every few years, can make accessing the NHS difficult.
We want to help change this, so Armed Forces families are able to access NHS services easily in all parts of England. We also want to ensure that they can get care and support from clinicians and people who understand their health and wellbeing needs.
Anyone can share their views, however, the NHS is particularly keen to hear from serving, reserve and veteran families, people who are serving in or who have served in the British Armed Forces (regular and reserves) and organisations working with or supporting the Armed Forces community.
To find out more, and to get involved, please visit the NHS England and NHS Improvement website.
