Supporting the Armed Forces community

The NHS employs a significant number of healthcare professionals and non-clinical staff who are members of the Armed Forces community.

The Armed Forces community includes regular personnel, reservists, veterans, adult cadet force volunteers and families of regular personnel, reservists and veterans.

The values held by members of the Armed Forces community closely align to the NHS ways of working and values, with particular emphasis on service, commitment and respect.
