Veterans Health Days

Overview: 

There are 2.8 million Armed Forces Veterans in the UK – almost as many as there are diabetics- they have interesting and specific needs. The aim of this event is to raise awareness in GP registrars of Veterans healthcare and some of the support available from the third sector. It is a very interactive session where you are on “receive mode” for no more than 30 minutes at a time. You will meet veterans, representatives from the forces and the charity sector who will directly let you know about the issues that they face and solutions that can turn heart sink patients into some of your most uplifting and inspiring patients.

This course aims to cover the psychological and physical issues which are commonly faced by veterans and their families, and to outline some of the resources which are available to help them. The course also discusses retention of records and confidentiality.
