We are proud to support the armed forces community.

Every year, highly skilled and experienced personnel leave the armed forces. We recognise that veterans, reservists and military families bring unique value and perspective to our organisation and service delivery.

We have signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant and the Step into Health pledge to demonstrate our commitment and to support people to recognise that we are an armed forces friendly organisation.

Armed Forces Covenant 
The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the relationship between the nation, the government and the armed forces. It recognises that the whole nation has a moral obligation to members of the armed forces and their families, and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.

By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, we have made a voluntary and public pledge that members of the armed forces community will not face any disadvantage. It symbolises our ongoing commitment to members of the armed forces community who work in our organisation or access our services and we acknowledge that processes may need to be adjusted.

Step into Health
The Step into Health pledge connects the Trust to talent from the armed forces community by offering access into employment and career development opportunities.

The programme recognises the transferable skills and cultural values that armed forces personnel develop when serving and there compatibility with those required within NHS roles.

Career Transition Partnership
When someone leaves the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force or Royal Marines they will be offered support from the Career Transition Partnership to settle back into civilian life. Part of this support is help finding employment. 

We are registered with the CTP who advise on and share suitable vacancies via its website:
