Concord Hospital has a proud history of serving Australia’s veterans since 1941. Through recognition of the nationwide need for the provision of better care for veterans, the National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare (NCVH) was developed.
The Centre identifies a veteran as any current or past serving Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel with at least one day of active service, whether deployed on active combat or peacekeeping. Those who have not deployed, and reservists, are also considered veterans.
The Centre is an outpatient service of Concord Hospital. We aim to provide world-class care to Australia’s veterans to help to achieve optimal mental and physical wellbeing through an integrated healthcare model. Our clinicians work closely with the patient and their family and carers in all aspects of their treatment planning and goal setting.
The Centre will be the first Australian service to combine specialities to meet the complex needs of the Australian veteran community. Our specialist team includes psychology, psychiatry, pain, drug health, rehabilitation medicine, physiotherapy, exercise physiology, dietetics, occupational therapy, diversional therapy, social work and peer support.
