Burbage Surgery is an accredited ‘NHS Veteran Friendly GP Practice’.
A Veteran is anyone who has served for at least one day in the armed forces. This is not only someone who has fought in the world wars but also younger Veterans who have served their country, for example in Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
This means that as part of the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have a dedicated member of staff, Alex Freeborn, who has knowledge of military related health conditions and veteran specific health services.
This is important in helping ex-forces patients to get the best care and treatment.
Please see information concerning healthcare under the Armed Forces Covenant that can be accessed by ex-service personnel.
If you are a Veteran and would like this annotated on your medical record, please let us know.
