Veterans' Health

Initiated by the UK Government's Office for Veterans’ Affairs, with agreement from the Minister for Veterans' Affairs, this PSP aims to identify the Top 10 priorities for research to improve the quality of life for former UK service personnel, and their families and/or significant others. 

We want to hear from you

This Priority Setting Partnership wants to hear from veterans, their family members, carers and health and care professionals.

What does research need to find out about all aspects of physical and mental health and wellbeing to help improve care for former service personnel and their families, friends and carers?

The partnership is led by veterans, family members, charities and health professionals and supported by the Office for Veterans' Affairs.  The Office for Veterans' Affairs leads UK Government efforts to make sure the UK is the best place to be a veteran, anywhere in the world.

A veteran is anyone who has served for at least one day in the UK Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve), or Merchant Mariners who have seen duty on legally defined military operations.

The Priority Setting Partnership formed in late 2022 and expects to consult with veterans, families and carers, and health professionals from February 2023.  It aims to have identified the Top 10 priorities for research by the end of 2023.

Steering Group

We have a Steering Group, which is the group of people who are managing the Veterans' Health Priority Setting Partnership.
