Leicester’s Hospitals pledges support to the Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant

Signing the Covenant - Medical Regiment armed forces


On Thursday 5th November 2015 our Chairman, Karamjit Singh CBE, pledged the support of Leicester’s Hospitals to the Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant.

The purpose of the corporate covenant is to encourage support for service men and women, their families and veterans living and working in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and to recognise and remember the sacrifices they have made. It encourages everyone within our organisation to offer support to the local Armed Forces community, making it easier for service personnel, families and veterans to receive help from the Ministry of Defence and other charitable and voluntary sector groups.

The covenant will build on the strong ties already demonstrated between ourselves and 2 Medical Army Regiment (Rutland) who have sent some Combat Medical Technicians on clinical placement within our hospitals.

Our Trust Board has nominated a Non-Executive Director Col (Retd) Ian Crowe as the Board’s Armed Forces Champion, ensuring that engagement is embedded at the highest levels of the Trust. 

We support and encourage our staff to join the armed forces as reservists and will be working with the Armed Forces to proactively support their reservist recruitment.

Further information will be available, please contact e-empsp@em.rfca.mod.uk or call 01159 248627 if you would like to join up as a reservist. 

The Trust also supports Armed Forces personnel under the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) by undertaking work experience in the Trust to find the right career for them.
