Littleborough Group Practice takes a personal interest in all our patients who are Military Veterans or those who identify themselves as ex-forces.
The Practice Manager who herself is a Veteran and was a medic in the Royal Air Force and served in Iraq and Kosovo understands some of the challenges Veterans face. The Practice is aware of a number of local services available in the local community.
Op Courage is a "veterans" mental health transition, intervention and liaison service. This is a specialist service for ex-armed forces veterans and service personnel who are approaching discharge to support and recongise the early signs of mental health.
