NHS Stockport Nominated for Veteran Healthcare Award

Stockport NHS Foundation Trust has been nominated for an award for providing tailored veteran healthcare.

NHS Stockport has been praised for its veteran healthcare after the creation of a ‘Veteran Passport’ which includes information and guidelines for caregivers and prevents former personnel from having to relive traumatic stories. The passport came in response to patient feedback on the difficulty some patients face relaying medically relevant information relating to traumatic events from their time in service.

The trust has been shortlisted by the Greater Manchester and Lancashire Royal British Legion in the ‘Public Sector Partner’ category. The passport allows veterans to include as much or as little information as they decide is relevant to them and helps staff within Stepping Hill hospital and the rest of the foundation trust know what care is specifically needed.
