King Edward VII’s Hospital was established in 1899 to provide care to service personnel and veterans of the UK’s Armed Forces. In 2018 the Hospital reaffirmed its commitment to the veteran community by establishing the Centre for Veterans’ Health, which now coordinates all healthcare for service personnel, veterans, their spouses, widows and civil partners.
The Centre for Veterans’ Health currently has three core pillars of activity:
- The Pain Management Programme (PMP): our free, award-winning programme has also been recognised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as an outstanding practice. It exists to help veterans manage acute and chronic pain, helping them get back to living their lives to the fullest.
- Military Grants for free surgical care: The Centre for Veterans’ Health means-tested grants programme provides 100% grants to uninsured Service or ex-Service Personnel, (including reserves). This enables them to access the Hospital completely free of charge.
- 20% Discount off Hospital fees: All Service or ex-Service Personnel (including reserves), without medical insurance are entitled to a 20% discount on their hospital bill. This is regardless of rank or length of service. It also extends to their spouses/civil partners and includes widowers and widows.
