The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded a Ministry of Defence Gold Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) award.

Having previously held the silver award, the progression to gold and the highest award in the scheme, highlights the trust’s commitment to our Armed Forces community. The trust is one of a number of organisations across London to have received the gold award for demonstrating that they are a forces-friendly employer.

Caroline Clarke, group chief executive for the Royal Free London, said:

“We are delighted to receive the gold award recognising our achievements supporting the Armed Forces community. At the Royal Free London, we are committed to taking meaningful steps to support members of the community who work for the trust, their families, and those we care for as patients.”

At the Royal Free London we are a proud signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant.
