We are an Armed Forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice.
This means that, as 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, please let your GP know to help ensure you are getting the
best possible care.

Veterans are defined as:
‘Anyone who has served for at least one day in HM Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Navy Seafarers & Fishermen who have served in a vessel at a time when it was operated to facilitate military operations by HM Armed Forces’
Queensway Medical Centre is setting up a Veterans register, therefore please inform your doctor, or a member of staff if you meet the above criteria. If you have a health problem that is related to your service in the Armed Forces, the Practice may be able to get you referred more quickly for any hospital care that you may need (please note that this is subject to the clinical needs of others).
