star this property answer text <br /><p>The Armed Forces Covenant sets a number of goals with respect to healthcare, including that members of the Armed Forces community should enjoy the same standard of, and access to, healthcare as received by any other UK citizen in the area where they live. With regard to Mental Health, the Armed Forces Covenant states that veterans should be able to access mental health professionals who have an understanding of Armed Forces culture.</p><p>The Ministry of Defence provides primary healthcare for all Service personnel including mobilised Reservists. The provision of veterans' healthcare, including for those affected by post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions, is primarily the responsibility of the National Health Service in England and the Devolved Administrations. Veterans in England, Scotland and Wales are entitled to priority access to secondary healthcare for conditions suspected to be due to their service in the Armed Forces, subject to the clinical needs of others. In Northern Ireland, the mental health needs of returning ex-Service personnel continue to be addressed either through the Ulster Defence Regiment and Royal Irish Aftercare Service, through Combat Stress, or directly within the mainstream Primary Care and Mental Health services.</p><p>For a summary of our approach to ensuring that our serving Armed Forces personnel receive the very best mental healthcare provision, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 10 September 2015 to Question 9141 to the hon. Member for Tewkesbury (Mr Robertson). http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2015-09-07/9141/</p><p>For details of the steps we have taken to ensure that veterans are provided with the support they need, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 15 September 2015 to Question 9865 to the hon. Member for Inverclyde (Mr Cowan). http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-question/Commons/2015-09-10/9865/</p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Since the Armed Forces Covenant Annual Report 2012, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has systematically been reviewing the public transport arrangements in place for all locations where there is Defence housing. Where the location of Service family accommodation does not have reasonable access to essential amenities, including public transport, this is reflected in reduced charges for accommodation. Furthermore, when setting charges in the future we plan to look in more detail at the location of Service accommodation based on the Department for Transport’s (DfT) accessibility indicators, which also consider travel time to health and education services and food stores, and also modern requirements such broadband speed. <br><br>Separately, the MOD is working with DfT and The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to improve transport links at Defence sites. Work has been undertaken to highlight the importance of considering the needs of service personnel and their families in setting local transport provisions in line with the commitment that those who serve in the Armed Forces and their families should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public or commercial services.<br><br>In 2013, DfT Engagement Teams who are responsible for engaging with local authorities on transport matters in England met with authorities to highlight the importance of supporting the Armed Forces Covenant. Engagement meetings with local authorities across England were used to raise awareness of the many armed forces establishments located in isolated areas and the lack of choice military families have over the location of their Service accommodation which means that some families face transport difficulties and also struggle to maintain employment as a result of their mobility. <br><br>Similarly, DCLG published advice on provisions for locations where there is Defence housing in their Guidance on Travel Plans, Transport Assessments and Statements in decision-taking. This publication contains guidance for local authorities on the special consideration owed to service personnel and their families particularly in setting local transport strategies and plans that should consider the particular requirements of any Armed Forces families in their area.<br><br>The MOD will continue to monitor the issue through the Families Federations.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A feature of the Armed Forces Covenant is the Covenant Reference Group (CRG) which is chaired by the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and includes representatives from all of the main Government Departments and Devolved Administrations. The CRG meets regularly to guide and direct work on the Armed Forces Covenant. The CRG also includes the three Service Family Federations, COBSEO (the Confederation of Service Charities) and other charities. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) also holds regular meetings with Devolved Administrations specifically to take forward Covenant work. The MOD also works closely with other Government Departments through the CRG Ministerial Sub-committee to meet their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and in much of their day to day work.</p><p> </p> more like this
