Armed Forces Covenant
Our Trust has signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
Signing up to the covenant involves making a number of commitments including ensuring that no member of the Armed Forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of public services.
The covenant also sets how the Trust will promote its armed forces friendly organisation status by supporting the employment of veterans and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) in order to establish an employment pathway for Service Leavers.
Step into Health
On 25 April 2019 our Trust signed up to the Step into Health pledge.
Step into Health offers an access route into employment and other career development opportunities within the NHS to members of the Armed Forces community.
The programme recognises the transferable skills and cultural values that Armed Forces personnel have developed and how these skills and values are compatible with working in the NHS.
Signing up to the pledge means that we will aim to highlight career opportunities to the Armed Forces community and support them in gaining employment.
