Defence Medical Welfare Service

Who we are

DMWS is an independent charity providing help and support to frontline staff; The Armed Forces, veterans, NHS staff, police and blue light services, The Merchant Navy & their immediate family whenever they are receiving medical treatment.

Since 1943 we have operated across the UK and Cyprus . We also deploy overseas supporting those who put themselves in harm’s way to serve our country. Our practical and emotional support ensures that no family goes through the worry of illness or injury alone.

Whether it be a life-threatening injury sustained by a soldier, or a housing crisis for a military veteran, PTSD diagnosis for an NHS hospital worker, a police or fire officer returning to work after a traumatic incident; we help navigate the healthcare pathway, unlocking the solutions to improve wellbeing and support recovery. ?

Our welfare staff offer comprehensive and confidential medical welfare support to patients and their immediate family as well as to their primary care givers and healthcare professionals. We work with patients when their medical needs are being met but when other issues, problems or social influences may be distracting them from their recovery. Our support is tailored to individuals.

We operate in hospitals and recovery centres across the UK and Cyprus. View our Locations
