You can refer yourself to Healthshare for physiotherapy if you: 

  • Have a muscle or joint related issue/condition

  • Are over 18 years old 
  • Are not under the care of a hospital consultant for the same problem 
  • Live in London catchment areas. 

Congratulations on your pregnancy. 

Choosing the right hospital can be an overwhelming process. To help you do this, it can be helpful to know how NHS maternity care is provided. 

We want everyone to have continuity of carer during their maternity care. 

This means you are linked to the same team during your pregnancy and postnatal care. This helps build a relationship with your midwife and their team. Research shows this leads to better outcomes for both mums and babies. It can also give you a more positive experience throughout your pregnancy. 

Please consider where you live as part of your decision about where to have your maternity care. All hospitals offer continuity of carer if you live within in their catchment area. 

If you live outside of the catchment area, we can still provide maternity care but are unable to offer continuity of carer. The hospital from the catchment area you live in will be responsible for your postnatal care once you have left hospital after giving birth. 

All midwifery appointments are held in local community hubs if you live within our catchment area.

Dedicated Health Services for the Armed Force community 

Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service
Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service, is the new overarching name for the Veterans’ Mental Health Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service (TILS), Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (CTS) and Veterans’ Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS). The new name has been developed following feedback from veterans and their families to make it easier for those leaving the military and veterans to find help. Op COURAGE is for Service leavers, reservists, veterans and their families, who can contact the service direct, or ask a GP, charity or someone else, such as a family member or friend, to refer them.
For further information, including contact details for the service in your region,

The VTN is for veterans who have physical health problems which have been caused from their time in the Armed Forces. Located in a number of major trauma centres across England, the VTN works closely with DMS, Op COURAGE: The Veterans Mental Health and Wellbeing Service , as
well as military charities, to provide specialist care and treatment. Access is via GP referral only. 


Personalised care for veterans
Veterans who have a complex and life-long health condition may be eligible for the veterans personalised care programme, which seeks to give individuals more choice and control over how their care is planned and delivered. Veterans will have a personalised care plan based on what matters to them and which they help to develop. They may also be eligible for a personal budget to pay for some of the care and support
they need. Access to this programme of care, means that veterans should also get more support in the community and access to a range of help, such as emotional and practical support from people who have similar health conditions or disabilities. This is in addition to being supported to access dedicated services, such as Op COURAGE and the VTN. Applications should be made to the person’s local integrated care system.
