A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day, and there are around 4.5m veterans in the UK.
When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS.
All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS hospital care for any condition, as long as it’s related to their service, whether or not they receive a war pension.
All people leaving the armed forces are given a summary of their medical records, which they are advised to give to their new GP when they register.
Veterans are encouraged to tell their GP about their veteran status in order to benefit from priority treatment.
A minority of people leaving the armed forces need access to mental health services; others might require it later in civilian life.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working for six months or more at The Revel Surgery in the last financial year 2017 – 2018 was £92,518 before tax and national insurance.
To ensure the practice accommodates the rise in appointment demand over the winter period the practice has increased the number of doctors appointments throughout the week. If you feel you need to see a doctor please make an appointment in the usual way or ask your local pharmacist for advice – your pharmacist can give you advice for many common minor illnesses, such as diarrhoea, minor infections, headache, or sore throats.
In line with government guidelines, all patients with The Revel Surgery have been allocated a named GP at the practice. As has always been our practise, patients can continue to see whichever doctor they wish regardless of who their named GP is on their records.
