We, at Blackburn Road Medical Centre, are proud to be an accredited Veteran Friendly GP practice to support out veteran community this Remembrance Day.
As a Veteran Friendly GP Practice we:
- Have a clinical lead for veteran health, who is supported by the whole practice to improve veteran health services.
- Ask patients "Have you served in the Armed Forces?" to help identify patients and code them on our system.
- Support veteran patients to access dedicated health services.
- Undertake regular training and development to meet the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant and better understand the needs of veteran patients.
If you're a veteran patient, please let us know that you have served so that we can make sure that we understand your health needs.
A University of Chester study revealed that the Veteran Friendly Accreditation programme, which is run by the Royal College of General Practitioners in partnership with NHS England, leads to better healthcare.

Keep my Place
The surgery will be adding a new service to the phone queuing system. It is called Keep my Place in the Queue. This allows you to put the phone down but keep your place in the queue without holding on the line. The surgery will then call you back when it is your turn.
