Veteran Friendly Accreditation May 2022

Here at Padgate Medical Centre, we have been given accreditation as a Veteran Friendly Practice!

This means we are actively working to support our Veteran patients through various means including our PPG, website and through word of mouth.

What is a Veteran?
A veteran is anyone who has served for at least one day in the Armed Forces, whether as a regular or reservist. It means the same as ‘ex service personnel’ or ‘ex-forces’, although not all veterans know the term or choose to associate with the term ‘veteran’. Younger veterans might refer to themselves as ‘ex-forces’, in the belief that a veteran is someone who fought in the First/Second World War.

Please follow the below links to find out more about some of the support available to you:

Please make sure you inform the reception team that you are a Veteran so we can ensure this in your medical record.
