Armed Forces-friendly organisation

HCT is an Armed Forces-friendly organisation and has signed agreements which recognise the value serving personnel, veterans and military families bring to our workforce. This has resulted in HCT being awarded the Silver Award in the 2022 Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme by committing to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and Step Into Health pledge. HCT will endeavour to uphold the key principles of the Covenant, which says that no member of the Armed Forces Community (staff member or patient) should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services, compared to any other citizen.

We will also support the employment of veterans and Service spouses and partners and seek to provide flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners support staff who are members of the Reserve Forces and volunteer leaders in military cadet organisations. Further details can be found in HCT’s Employing Staff in the Reserve and Cadet Forces Policy.
