Share your views to help improve health and wellbeing support for armed forces families in England
03 November 2020
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 and create added pressure for some.
We want to help change this, so that armed forces families are able to access NHS services more easily across England. We also want to ensure that those families caring for individuals injured in service get the care and support they need from clinicians and people who understand the armed forces.
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 https://www.engage.england.nhs.uk/survey/health-and-wellbeing-support-armed-forces-families/
The deadline for responding is 30 November 2020.
