Veterans' mental health a priority

17th June 2010

Mr Murrison, who is also private parliamentary secretary to health secretary Andrew Lansley, wants post-traumatic stress disorder as experienced by troops had to become a greater priority for the NHS. A former Royal Navy medical officer, he has been asked to design a blueprint for services that would benefit the mental health of veterans.
