The Veterans Orthopaedic Service currently provides unique care for both serving and ex-service personnel from every military background, air, sea and land – regardless of their length of service. The service is based at The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) in Oswestry, North Shropshire, a renowned specialist centre for the treatment of orthopaedics and all musculoskeletal conditions.

Our aim is to provide world class facilities that are tailored to suit military Veterans to give the best possible care we can, as our Veterans so richly deserve.

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 (WU) is a ground-breaking charity which uses a world class archaeological project exploring the Waterloo Battlefield in Belgium to support veterans and serving personnel in their recovery and health, wellbeing, transition, education and employment. The aims of the charity, as set out in the articles, are to assist veterans and serving personnel by any means possible, to give veterans
the opportunity to participate in the archaeological study of sites of military interest, to provide education and vocational skills training to the public generally, and veterans specially, and to advance the education of the public through archaeology.

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.
