Armed Forces veteran friendly

Boughton Health Centre are an Armed Forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice!

This means that, as a part of the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have a dedicated clinician who has a specialist knowledge of military related health conditions and veteran specific health services. This is important in helping ex-forces to get the best care and treatment. 

If you are ex-forces, it is important you inform us to ensure you are getting the best possible care.

Being flagged as a veteran in your NHS medical records will help to ensure that you are able to access dedicated services for those who have served in the UK Armed Forces. These include services for Mental Health and Physical Health conditions.

To inform us you are a veteran:

  • Contact us via telephone to 01244 325 421, and inform the member of the administration team that you wish to add your veteran status onto your medical record.
  • If you are a user of our online services, please send us a message to ask we add your veteran status to your medical record.
  • Also, feel free to come into the surgery at any point to inform us of your veteran status.
