The Trust have successfully achieved reaccreditation status as a Veteran Aware Trust with the Veterans Covenant Healthcare Alliance (VCHA) Accredited Trust for the second year running.
The Trust was praised for the outstanding service improvement that has continued since the original accreditation was first awarded.
Kathryn Glass, VCHA Regional Lead North West, said ‘The application submitted by STHK was exemplary, and as such was very worthy of the reaccreditation status. The work that is undertaken by your organisation for the Armed Forces Community, along with other North West NHS Trusts is leading the way nationally for Veterans, Reservists and their families. Many congratulations to all involved.’
