Recognise support for Armed Forces

Health Secretary Alex Neil has urged Scots to nominate innovators who have developed “outstanding” projects which give the best of health and social care to the Armed Forces community.

Mr Neil was speaking in support of the Military and Civilian Health Partnership Awards, a UK-wide initiative to identify those who have made a difference to the health and wellbeing of Service personnel, their families and veterans. They could work for Defence Medical Services, the National Health Service, or the independent and voluntary sectors.

Mr Neil said: “It is absolutely vital our military and civilian health professionals get the recognition they deserve. The Military And Civilian Health Partnership Awards provide us an opportunity to recognise these achievements.”
