Veteran Friendly GP Practice

We, at Dr Dawoud’s Surgery are proud to be an accredited Veteran Friendly GP practice and to support our veteran community this Remembrance Day.

As a Veteran Friendly GP Practice we:

· Have a clinical leads for veteran health Dr Hamad & Dr Dawoud, who is supported by the whole practice to improve veteran health services.

· Ask patients ‘Have you served in the Armed Forces?’ to help identify veteran patients and code them on our system.

· Support veteran patients to access dedicated health services.

· Undertake regular training and development to meet the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant and better understand the needs of veteran patients.

If you’re a veteran patient, please let us know that you have served so that we can make sure that we understand your health needs.

A University of Chester study revealed that the Veteran Friendly Accreditation programme, which is run by the Royal College of General Practitioners in partnership with NHS England, leads to better healthcare.
