The Armed Forces Covenant: What it means for you
Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is committed to the Armed Forces Covenant:
- To ensure no member of the Armed Forces community face disadvantage in the provision of healthcare compared to other citizens
- To ensure members of the Armed Forces community should retain their relative position on any NHS waiting list if moved around the UK due to the service person being posted
- In some circumstances, special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved
Full details of CUH’s commitment can be viewed here.
When referring Armed Forces personnel to Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, GPs are reminded to advise us appropriately, to ensure we can uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.
Armed forces Regulars, Reservists, Veterans or military family members attending a clinic appointment at CUH should please advise the receptionist on arrival.
NHS Choices provide a webpage detailing healthcare choices for the Armed Forces community which can be accessed here.
We welcome feedback from the service community, our patients and their families on how we are doing and where there are opportunities for improvement. Visit the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) next to Main Reception at Addenbrooke’s Hospital or e-mail: email@example.com
