Our Trust is very proud to be fully signed-up to the Veterans’ Covenant – supporting colleagues who are ex-service personnel.
We want to be able to support all colleagues at work, and it is now well-recognised that ex-services personnel may need extra professional support.
We are aware that many CHFT colleagues have, at some point, served their country and want them to be aware of all the support they can access here at work.
Surgery’s General manager Jason, himself ex Army, said: “ After serving, it is increasingly apparent that on a national scale, some ex-servicemen and women now need support after serving and we want CHFT colleague to be reassured it is here for them. We have a professional counselling service which is there for everyone.”
