Becoming a veteran friendly practice in Wales

This scheme is aimed at practices in England. However, NHS Wales have developed their own veteran friendly GP practice scheme, which you can sign up to via the NHS Wales website.

Maintaining accreditation when your practice merges with a non-accredited practice

If the veteran's clinical lead for the accredited practice remains employed by the merged practice, we can change the name of the practice on our records. If the merged practice is getting a new practice code, then a new application for accreditation may be necessary. Please email to let us know when the practices will be merging and for more advice.

Can a PCN become accredited?

There are no plans to allow PCNs to accredit. We use the NHS England practice code system to validate applications and can only accept one application per practice code.
