This week the Veterans and Families Institute for Military Social Research launched their report “We Also Served: The Health and Well-Being of Female Veterans in the UK”.

In June 2020, the Cobseo Female Veteran Cluster commissioned the VFI to undertake a scoping study into the health and well-being needs of female veterans in the UK, identify gaps in research utilising national and international research, and to provide a framework for prioritising research and other activities with female veterans in the UK going forward.

In this excellent webinar, Dr Lauren Godier-McBard (Senior Research Fellow and Women and Equalities Lead, VFI) presented the findings of the project, exploring the factors impacting on UK female veteran’s health and well-being. This was followed by reflections from representatives of Cobseo, NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Office for Veterans’ Affairs, and the Ministry of Defence on the significance of the research, and a Q&A panel session.
