What can be done to help?
The latest survey from 4 years ago identifies 14,600 registered veterans living in the Wirral. However, this is not the true number. Veterans living in the Wirral could have different health care needs to the general population.
We want to work in partnership to raise awareness amongst health care professionals about what these are, and what specialist services are available, or need to made available in the community to support them to lead healthy lives.
What is the ambition?
· To identify and support every person leaving the armed forces returning to the Wirral in a personalised way.
· Ensure everyone has the opportunity to access a GP and understand what services they can access.
· Co-consult with local veterans and organisations to identify what services are available and what the gaps are.
· Bring together all interested parties and form and action group
· Look at solutions together to meet the needs of local veterans living on the Wirral.
