Summary

Each local Health board (LHB) has a team with an interest or experience of military (mental) health problems.  These teams will accept referrals from healthcare staff, GP’s, veteran charities and self-referrals from ex service personnel.  The appropriate team can be contacted by going to their LHB page on our website and using one of the contact methods including telephone, email, or fax.  Appointments will be arranged as close to the veterans home as possible, in a suitable venue.  The service is not able to respond to emergency referrals.  Veterans in crisis should contact their own GP or the Out of Hours Service.  There is a Psychiatrist on-call at all Accident and Emergency Units in all District General Hospitals.  Alternatively call 24/7 helplines.  Following the assessment, the veteran may be referred on to other NHS teams or departments for further treatment.  The team may also refer to veteran charities for help with debt management, benefits and war pension/armed forces compensation claims as indicated.  For more information, contact by telephone, email or visit the website.
