About the Event
Veterans Health Study Day
Date: Tuesday 30 April 2019
Time: Roughly 9:00 - 16:00
Venue: Mark Tey Best Western Hotel, C06 1DU
There are 2.8 million Armed Forces Veterans in the UK – almost as many as there are diabetics- they have interesting and specific needs. The aim of this event is to raise awareness in registrars of Veterans healthcare and some of the support available from the third sector. It is a very interactive session where you are on “receive mode” for no more than 30 minutes at a time. You will meet veterans, representatives from the forces and the charity sector who will directly let you know about the issues that they face and solutions that can turn heart sink patients into some of your most uplifting and inspiring patients.

The course also discusses retention of records and confidentiality.
The RCGP e-learning course has been developed in partnership with the Royal British Legion and with support from Changing Faces. It was funded by the Department of Health.
