Veteran Friendly Accreditation

At Acklam Medical Centre we’re proud to support our Armed Forces community as an accredited Veteran Friendly GP Practice.

There are nearly 1,100 accredited practices in England, helping to support over 2.2 million veterans in England. Studies suggest veterans may be less likely to seek help if they feel their healthcare professional won’t understand their health needs.

Veteran Friendly accreditation provides important reassurance that a practice understands veterans health needs and can support them.

Additionally, If you or someone you know are experiencing Mental Health difficulties you can access help from the NHS Veterans' Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS). This service provides a range of treatments, from recognising early signs of mental health problems to therapeutic treatments for more complex mental health difficulties.

We are conscious that some military veterans may have been affected by the 20th anniversary of the Iraq conflict. If you have been affected by this or any other military conflict or action, help is available.


Help is also available via Op Courage, the veterans’ mental health and wellbeing service which can be found by following this link
