His Royal Highness, The Duke of Kent Tours Our Centre for Veteran's Health
On Tuesday 6 February 2018, His Royal Highness, The Duke of Kent, and President of King Edward VII’s Hospital, visited our Hospital to meet with some of our patients and staff. His Royal Highness also took a tour of our latest developments, including our newly built ophthalmology unit, endoscopy unit, and Centre for Veterans’ Health.
Meeting Patients and staff
King Edward VII’s Hospital was established by The Duke of Kent’s great grandfather in 1899 to care for soldiers returning from the Second Boer War. Although now a leading private hospital, we have remained a charity and are committed to supporting the Armed Forces through our new Centre for Veterans’ Health. This offers military & ex-military personnel of all ranks an extensive range of subsidised surgeries and procedures with King Edward VII’s Hospital’s leading consultants. This includes the Centre’s Military Grant Fund, which offers a means-tested grant of up to 100% towards the hospital costs of procedures carried out at a King Edward VII’s Hospital.
Pain management programme
Furthermore, the Centre has recently established its Pain Management Programme. Created in conjunction with Supporting for Wounded Veterans, it aims to help veterans who are living with pain on a daily basis. This service is lead by Pain Management Specialist, Dr Andrew Baranowski and his Team of psychologists, nurses and physiotherapists as well as several other eminent clinicians. The pain service at King Edward VII Hospital also offers free on-going pain clinics to veterans, lead by Dr Dominic Aldington in which Dominic provides advice and guidance on pain related issues.
