Priority healthcare treatment for veterans in England and Wales

The Armed Forces Covenant states that no one who has served in the Armed Forces should face disadvantage and, in specific circumstances, can expect special consideration.

UK veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS care for service related conditions. Talk to your GP for more information, or visit NHS Choices in England, or NHS Direct for help in Wales.

If you're having problems getting priority treatment in England, find your local NHS Armed Forces Network.

How to make a complaint

If you're dissatisfied with the service you receive, talk to your GP or contact the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. In Wales you can contact the Public Services Ombudsman.
