The NHS Armed Forces Health Podcast is a series that aims to help you – the armed forces community – access the plethora of NHS services available. By the armed forces community we mean Service personnel, veterans, reservists and their family members. Through these episodes we will look at different aspects of healthcare from leaving service to finding a GP, taking care of mental and physical health, and provision for forces families.

This podcast series has been commissioned by the AF PPV in order to be used as a resource for the Armed Forces community to support them in understanding and navigating the NHS and to raise awareness of how to become empowered advocates for their own health as a patient or family member of one.

There are six episodes in all taking the listener on a journey through the different aspects of the NHS. They can listen to the whole series or one that is relevant to them. The guests are all members of the AF PPV who gave up their time to pass on their expertise and experiences that they feel are relevant.
