Jo Humphries, Chief People Officer at HPFT said:

“Veterans bring such a unique set of skills and experience to the workforce, and we know that diversity supports greater understanding and innovative approaches, which can lead to fantastic new ways of working and connection with the communities we serve.

“Our commitment to veterans fits perfectly with our values and helps to ensure that ours is a Trust where everyone feels that they belong.”

Laura McKain, Midlands and East of England Regional Lead with the Veterans Covenant Healthcare Alliance said:

“Veterans have many transferrable skills as well as being renowned for their hard work, dedication and great work ethic, therefore being an asset to any working environment. The NHS is an ideal workplace for veterans who are used to managing challenging situations, limited resources and tight deadlines, all of which are current difficulties facing the NHS.”
