Veterans' mental health a priority

17th June 2010

Conservative MP Andrew Murrison, prime minister David Cameron’s personal adviser on veterans’ mental health, has said he wants centres of excellence to be established throughout the country for veterans.

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.
