If you have served in the armed forces as a regular or a reserve then you may be entitled to healthcare support as a veteran.
NHS Scotland and all Scottish health boards have signed the armed forces covenant which says that:
- veterans should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in using or accessing public and commercial services
- special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for the injured and the bereaved
If you would like to find out more about your health rights as a veteran or would like more information on your local veterans health board champion visit our veterans health rights page.
