A SERVICE providing mental health support to former armed forces has received a visit from Stratford MP Nadhim Zahawi.
Mr Zahawi visited the Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service in Stratford where he spoke to staff and heard more about what is being achieved by the project – which offers support to veterans across the midlands and east of England.
Mr Zahawi said: “I’m delighted I’ve had this opportunity to meet with some of the tremendous staff involved in this inspirational service.
“I recognise the difficulties often faced by the NHS to achieve what they and their partners want in service change. Evidently this collaboration with ex armed service personnel in understanding their unique needs, tailoring and delivering NHS services for veterans in collaboration with them, is working well and I’m pleased to promote their efforts back in Westminster.”
