Summary

Each Local Health Board (LHB) has appointed an experienced clinician as a Veteran Therapist (VT) with an interest or experience of military (mental) health problems.

The VT will accept referrals from health care staff, GPs, veteran charities and self-referrals from ex-service personnel.

The appropriate VT can be contacted by going to their LHB page on our website and using one of the contact methods including telephone, email or fax.

Appointments will be arranged as close to the veteran's home as possible in a suitable venue. The service is not able to respond to emergency referrals. Veterans in crisis should contact their GP or the Out of Hours Service. There is a Psychiatrist on-call at all Accident and Emergency Units in District General Hospitals.

Alternatively call 24/7 help line: CALL on 0800 132 737.

Following the assessment the veteran may be offered treatment by the VT or referred on to other NHS teams or departments for further treatment. The VT will also refer to veteran charities for help with debt management, benefits and war pension/armed forces compensation claims as indicated. The service is unable to provide a diagnosis for Armed Forces Compensation Scheme claims.

For more information, contact by telephone, email or visit the website.
