We are proud of the courage and dedication of our Armed Forces, their families, veterans and reservists (the Armed Forces community), and it is our duty to ensure they receive the very best in care and support.
This award provides a unique opportunity to celebrate excellence in healthcare and health improvement for the Armed Forces community (as defined in the Armed Forces Covenant), and the importance of working in partnership with several stakeholders including the Defence Medical Services; the NHS; the Department of Health and Social Care; and the independent and voluntary sectors.
During the pandemic this collaboration has proven invaluable and this year we want to celebrate the people, teams and projects that have come together across the armed forces community sector during this challenging period.
Winners will be collaborative projects between varied types of organisation including health and social care, across departments and charities. Judges are looking for specific examples of projects which can demonstrate the sometimes specialist needs of armed forces personnel.
Open to organisation across the public, private and third sector who can demonstrate system led support for the armed forces community. Examples might include mental health services MSK care or social support.
