NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Armed Forces

The Armed Forces Covenant

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has reaffirmed its ongoing commitment to those individuals who currently serve, our Reservists and those veterans who are key members of our society by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

The strong relationship between NHSGGC and the UK Armed Forces is greatly valued, with the Health Board already working to support employees who also are Reservists.

The Board also welcomed assistance from the Armed Forces during the pandemic, particularly logistical support and advice to set up testing and vaccination programmes in the fight against COVID-19.

By signing the Covenant, NHSGGC pledged its commitment to supporting armed forces veterans, recognising the value they contribute and acknowledging that serving personnel and military families should be treated with fairness and respect.

Our Covenant pledges can be found here.

Are you a member of the Volunteer Reserve Forces or a Regular Reservist working in NHSGGC?

The regular training that the Reserve Forces undertake brings essential skills into the workplace such as leadership, communication, team working and organisational ability, which ultimately lead to improved performance in the workplace.

The Reserve Forces Training Policy is an established National NHS Scotland policy within our suite of workforce policies and we hope that we can be confident that all NHS Scotland employers are treating their staff who are members of the Reserve Forces equally. Further information is available on the Workforce Policies page of HR Connect.
