The NHS has codes to identify those who've served in the Armed Forces. The assists the NHS to enable veterans to receive appropriate support when needed. GP practices should ask patients whether they have served, but this doesn't always happen, so if you're a veteran, ask your GP or practice staff to ensure that your records are coded appropriately.


The codes are:


13JI - Military veteran

13JY - History relating to military service

13q0 - History relating to Army service

13q1 - History relating to Royal Navy service

13q2 - History relating to Royal Air Force service

13q3 - Served in Armed Forces


Some GP practices are now (or soon will be) 'Veteran Aware'


NHS England and the Royal College of General Practitioners have endorsed the 'Military Veteran Aware' accreditation. Accredited practices will:


  • have a lead for veterans’ issues within the surgery
  • identify and flag veterans on their computer system
  • undertake dedicated training and attend armed forces healthcare meetings
  • increase understanding of the health needs of veterans amongst both clinical and administrative staff

This scheme is being rolled out nationally from late 2018.
