Veteran friendly GP practice

Kingsway Surgery is a Veteran Friendly GP Practice.

We are proud to support our Armed Forces community and we are able to deliver the best possible care and treatment for patients who have served in the armed forces.

As a Veteran Friendly GP Practice we:

  • Ask patients ‘Have you served?’ to identify veteran patients
  • Support veteran patients to access dedicated health services

Let a member of staff know if you, or your spouse/partner, have ever served in the UK armed forces so that we can best support your care needs. As per the Armed Forces Covenant, all veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS hospital care for conditions associated to their time within the armed forces (service related). However, this is always subject to clinical need and does not entitle the patient to jump the queue ahead of someone with a higher clinical need. 

Please contact reception or use the links for any help or information you require.

The Veteran Friendly Practices accreditation scheme is run by the Royal College of General Practitioners in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement.

You can find out further information and support by visiting the Royal College of General Practitioners website here.
