Veterans Trauma Network

The Veterans Trauma Network (VTN) is an NHS service that provides specialist care and treatment to veterans who have physical health problems as a result of their time in the armed forces.  The VTN is available in England and Wales.

The VTN can support you by:

  • providing personalised treatment within the NHS
  • treating you through clinicians who understand the military environment and specialise in the type of physical health problems you have
  • helping families and carers of veterans with physical health problems access appropriate support services

The VTN is a collection of 12 NHS Veteran Trauma Centres and four specialist units, each with military and civilian medical experts who will be able to help you with your physical service-related health problems. They will work with you to develop the best clinical plan for your needs.  You will also be put in touch with a Veteran Support Worker who will guide you through your health pathway and signpost to the specialised support available for veterans and their families.
