Military March 2024

Join us in celebrating the contributions of the Armed Forces community to the NHS by participating in #MilitaryMarch, our annual social media campaign

1 February 2024

We are excited to announce that #MilitaryMarch returns next month. Our annual social media campaign offers you an opportunity to celebrate your reservist and wider Armed Forces community colleagues, share your successes and highlight steps you have taken to become a more forces-friendly employer. 

How you can get involved:

  • Follow @NHSEArmedForces on X (Twitter) and retweet our content. 
  • Share existing resources, blogs/vlogs/podcasts and case studies using  #MilitaryMarch on X (Twitter). 
  • Post about successful Armed Forces recruitment/networking events that you have organised and celebrate their success. 
  • Promote Military March and share contact details for your Armed Forces/reservist champions on your internal newsletters and communications. 
  • Publish an article or blog on your intranet and include the trust's Armed Forces champion contact details, useful resources, such as the sign-up page for your armed forces network, your organisation’s reserves policy (if you have one) or our information pages on the NHS Employers website. 

The highlight of this year’s campaign will be our annual NHS and the Armed Forces conference, NHS and the Armed Forces: our shared purpose, on 12 March. Book your free place on our event page. 

Remember to follow @NHSEArmedForces and use #MilitaryMarch to join this year’s celebrations, and visit our supporting the Armed Forces community webpage for more ideas on how you can become a more inclusive employer.
