Armed Forces Covenant


The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

Dorset County Hospital has signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant and is committed to helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.

Dorset County Hospital also has a Voluntary Veterans Network which aims to promote
veterans’ welfare alongside the Armed Forces Covenant.
