Armed Forces Information

Our practice Armed Forces Champions are: Gabrielle Henderson-Rylance and Karen Thompson.

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.  

Our surgery is proud to have been awarded a Gold Status and has signed the Veterans Covenant in November 2020.

Supporting Patients Following Events in Afghanistan

We are conscious that some patients registered at Rickleton Medical Centre may be affected by current events in Afghanistan. Rickleton Medical Centre is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners as one which specialises in the care of military veterans and their families.

All the team have been trained in the care of military veterans and their families. If recent events have affected you and you wish to seek help, please come forward.
