Today’s research leads to tomorrow’s care

What needs investigating to help improve care for former service personnel and their families, friends and carers?

A team supported by the Office for Veterans’ Affairs is looking for the following people to answer a new short survey which will influence future research:

  • veterans
  • family, friends, and other supporters of veterans
  • and the healthcare professionals who work with veterans and families.

The survey asks for suggestions or comments about all areas of physical and mental health and wellbeing that need further investigation. It’s OK to write as much or as little as you like, about anything you feel is important.

This is being done as part of a Priority Setting Partnership led by veterans, family members, charities and healthcare professionals.  A Steering Group is organising this work, and we want to make sure that as many different perspectives as possible are represented in the survey responses.

We’re inviting you to take part in the survey at and also to circulate the survey link to your contacts to make sure we hear all of the important voices.

We are working with the James Lind Alliance to do this.  With your help we will identify the Top 10 priorities for research that would improve quality of life for veterans and their families and supporters.

There is more information about the partnership online.

Thank you for your help.  Together, we can influence future research to investigate areas of real, everyday importance to veterans, families and the healthcare professionals who work with them.

Please ask the veterans, family members and supporters and healthcare professionals that you know to complete the survey and say what would really make a difference to their lives.
