The service was set up in 2013 by Lt Col Carl Meyer who is a consultant military orthopaedic surgeon. Lt Col Carl Meyer has served as a Medical Officer in both the Gulf War and more recently in Afghanistan, where he was involved in treating local civilians, as well as injured troops. He has special clinical interests in hip and knee replacement and in trauma; his military work has informed his practice and driven his understanding of the experiences and expectation of veteran patients.

Col Meyer is supported by a team of highly skilled clinical colleagues with a passion for veterans’ medicine. A dedicated centre for the treatment of patients has recently been approved following a fundraising campaign. The building is set to be opened in the early part of 2022.

Waterloo Uncovered runs a nine-month Veteran Support Programme, aimed at giving veterans (and
serving personnel) from all corners of the United Kingdom and all parts of the Armed Forces a
comprehensive experience of Battlefield Archaeology. This experience brings numerous benefits, both in
supporting the recovery from physical and mental injuries, and in providing the opportunity to explore
archaeology as a possible professional, academic or casual interest in civilian life. The programme is supported throughout by archaeologists, and by professionals and enthusiasts from related disciplines, as well as by a team of Wellbeing professionals who are on hand to ensure that the programme is of maximum value to each participant.
