Dr Stephenson and Partners have Veteran’s Champions at the Practice, Mrs Caroline Duncan and Dr Jon Sumner. If you are a veteran please let our reception team know so that we are able to add your name to our Veteran Register, this will enable us to ensure we keep you informed of help available and support you and your family through the Healthcare system.
OUR ARMED FORCES CHAMPION is Caroline
Our Armed Forces Champion will offer advice and support and will be able to signpost our military community to the services they may require. Please let the practice know if you have served in the Armed Forces as a Regular, Reservist or Adult Volunteer Cadet. We have a pack that you can collect from our reception. The practice works with Sunderland CCG Armed Forces Leads and Veterans in Crisis Sunderland to ensure those who have served or currently serving in the military have access to information across the city on services and support that is available.
The City of Sunderland achieved the GOLD Award from the HSJ Awards 2019:Military and Civilian Health Partnership Award – Caroline our Veteran’s Champion was chosen to attend the award ceremony. Well Done the Sunderland CCG and all practices in the City.
Our PPG and The Team at Dr Stephenson raised £329.30 on Friday 8th November selling cakes to support Sunderland Veterans in Crisis. Thank you to all patients who supported this worthy cause.
Are we offering you the support you need? Please let June Pace, Practice Manager know if we can do anything differently.
Please see the first e-newsletter we have received in practice that may be of help.
