Armed Forces Veterans Group (AFVG)

Armed Forces Veterans Group at ESNEFT

ESNEFT’s Armed Forces and Veterans Group (AFVG) ensures serving military personnel and veterans are not disadvantaged when referred for treatment and ensures they are heard at every level.

AFVG includes senior ESNEFT managers, Armed Forces Clinical Champions and colleagues with a service background. All are committed to improving Armed Forces experience. Group members give hospital tours to Armed Forces personnel. They also work with the patient experience team to resolve Armed Forces issues, and to provide clear information.

Accountability for Armed Forces, ‘Veterans and their families’ (VATF) is included in the duties of staff who champion the adherence to the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant throughout ESNEFT.

AFVG gives ESNEFT a broad knowledge base and greater understanding of Armed Forces and veterans and their families and works to increase our NHS representation on the local Civilian Military Partnership Board. This was particularly evident when Colchester’s Garrison Commander thanked ESNEFT for its ‘timely, prioritised care and outstanding liaison throughout the COVID pandemic’.
