Suicide Prevention for Veterans - Audit of GP Surgeries in Suffolk
11 November 2019
In Suffolk there are an estimated 34-38,000 veterans.  Most served many years ago and many won’t be aware of services that may support their existing or future health, wellbeing and welfare needs.  Whilst the majority of ex-service personnel live fulfilling lives post service, recent evidence shows that veterans and/or their family members or close friends are among those at higher risk of suicide. We are keen to identify veterans and promote additional services through community networks and social prescribing.

Working with Public Health Suffolk we have developed a short survey to audit current systems in GP surgeries for identifying and supporting veterans. you are invited to complete the survey at the about link, which will only take a few minutes. Thank you
