Healthcare Covenant support for Regulars and Reserves

Having access to modern and advanced clinical care is essential. The National Health Service (NHS),  Ministry of Defence (MOD), charities and welfare organisations are working together to provide this, wherever you are.

Find out about healthcare through the NHS for the armed forces and advice on accessing healthcare for you and your family when relocating within the UK or returning home from an overseas posting.

MOD and Department of Health support services information can be found on GOV.UK.

Mental health support for the armed forces community can be found on GOV.UK  and NHS Choices   and includes Op COURAGE; a NHS mental health specialist service designed to help serving personnel due to leave the military, reservists, armed forces veterans and their families. It also includes Togetherall  (previously known as the Big White Wall), a mental health support service, and HeadFit for Life,  a mental fitness tool designed specifically for the armed forces community.

The Ministry of Defence has launched the defence people mental health and wellbeing strategy. It provides a renewed focus on promotion of mental health wellbeing and the prevention of mental ill health for serving personnel, veterans, families and MOD civil servants.
