Dedicated NHS Veterans' Mental Health Services 

The NHS provides dedicated mental health services for those who have served in the British Armed Forces – the Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS) and the Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS), both available across England.

Both services are provided by specialists in mental health who have an expert understanding of the Armed Forces. TILS is a dedicated out-patient service for serving personnel approaching discharge from the Armed Forces and veterans who are experiencing mental health difficulties. The CTS is an enhanced out patient service for ex-forces who have military related complex mental health difficulties that have not improved with previous treatment.

Access to both of these services is through the TILS. Individuals can contact the service direct or ask to be referred via a GP or military charity.

More information is available in this leaflet.

View Your medical record online

Patients who are already using Patient Access will be able to apply to view their medical record online with effect from 1 March 2015.  In order to view your medications, allergies and immunisations, you will need to come into the surgery and complete an application form, and give us your written consent.

(Registered patients who are not yet signed up to Patient Access should follow the procedure outlined above.)

NAMED GP

You may not be aware that GP Practices are now required to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. The named GP is largely a role of oversight with the requirement being introduced to reassure patients that they have one GP within the Practice who is responsible for ensuring that this work is carried out on their behalf.

However, you may continue to see any GP or nurse in the Practice as you currently do.

You do not need to take any further action, but if you have any questions or wish to discuss this further please contact us on 01905 363351.
