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.
