We’re proud to have signed up to the Armed Force Covenant to support those who serve, or have served in the military, and their families.
Our armed forces sacrifice some civilian freedoms, face danger and sometimes suffer injury or death because of their duty, and so we believe that they deserve respect, support and fair treatment.
By signing up to the covenant we’ve made a commitment to ensure that no member of the armed forces is disadvantaged as part of our service and in some situations, we may provide special treatment.
Phil Campling, Chief Executive Officer, said: “I’m pleased that we’ve signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant, to demonstrate our commitment to be a forces-friendly organisation.
“What this means is that we will support members of the armed forces, veterans and their families, such as by supporting our colleagues who choose to be part of the reservists, being flexible in granting leave for partners of service personnel or supporting veterans seeking employment with us.”
Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant is company-wide, throughout the 29 Millbrook Healthcare depots around the country, including Portsmouth, Southampton, Plymouth and Devon, where there are large service communities.
