Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS)

Mersey Care has been awarded Silver in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

Sheila Hamilton, Trust Armed Forces Lead said: “Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust recognises the service and sacrifice that our military veterans and their families have made to the nation. We are proud to have them as colleagues in Mersey Care and recognise the commitment and drive that they bring to their work with the Trust. We are working hard to support our reservist colleagues and to actively increase employment of people from the armed forces community and their families.

As both an employer and as an organisation which plays an active role in delivering healthcare to ex-armed forces and their families, we are very proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and to have been awarded an ERS Silver award.”
