Armed Forces Day.
Tomorrow marks Armed Forces Day. Acorn Surgery has been a ‘Veteran Friendly’ Practice since 2018, accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners. https://www.armedforcesday.org.uk/
This enables us to raise awareness, improve understanding and better equip our Team to respond to the needs of our patients who are Veterans. When a patient registers with the Practice we make sure we ask if they are a Veteran so we can code their medical record accordingly and have a broader understanding of the particular care they may need. If you’re a Veteran who registered with the Acorn Surgery before 2018, the Veteran code may not appear on your record, so please let us know by email if you wish the special Veteran code to be added – email@example.com with the subject heading ‘Veteran’.
