Step into Health

What is the Armed Forces Covenant?

To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment, the Armed Forces Covenant is the nation's commitment to you.

It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

What is Step into Health?

Step into Health has been created because the NHS recognises the transferable skills are cultural values that the Armed Forces community develop, and how they are compatible with those required within NHS roles.

Step into Health is open to all service leavers, veterans and their families. It is an incredible opportunity in which employers are working with the Armed Forces community to provide career and development opportunities within the NHS. For more information about the Step Into Health programme please visit the NHS Employers website - https://www.militarystepintohealth.nhs.uk/ where you can also register your interest in NHS opportunities across the country.
