NHS Employers Armed Forces Network

presenting at a network meeting

Our NHS Employers Armed Forces Network events provide opportunities for those leading on the Armed Forces agenda in NHS organisations to share good practice, network with military contacts and keep up to date with the Armed Forces programme, both locally and nationally.

The events provide employers with a space to compare and support one another in areas such as the implementation of an Armed Forces policy and nominations for Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) awards.

The events are held on a regular basis throughout the year in eight different regions in England:

  • London and the South
  • South West
  • East of England
  • West Midlands
  • East Midlands
  • Yorkshire & Humber
  • North West
  • North East.

The events bring together NHS representatives, Step into Health programme contacts, and representatives from military units and supporting organisations in the area.

Anyone from your organisation is eligible to attend, providing they have an interest in working to support the Armed Forces in the workforce. By attending our network events, you have the opportunity to:

  • share contact details and network with Armed Forces leads and representatives regionally
  • provide the space and time to think about your organisation’s actions on the agenda
  • discuss good practice with other NHS organisations across the country and keep up to date with the Armed Forces programme
  • share a calendar of local insight and recruitment events in addition to Armed Forces meetings.

We strongly encourage contacts to attend, as this is an opportunity to meet representatives from your region and receive support and learning to implement improvements in being a forces friendly employer. Details of upcoming network events can be found on our calendar of events page.
