Charity Number: 1058878
Company Number: Z4918057

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.

Support Offered

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.
