DMWS has been providing a medical welfare service since 1943. We help patients when their medical needs are being met but when other issues, problems or social influences may be distracting them from their recovery. We provide practical and emotional support to ensure that no family goes through the worry of injury or illness alone.
Apart from the obvious benefits to patients and their families, working with DMWS provides wider advantages to linked organisations and health care providers involved in the individual’s clinical care pathway.
The Armed Forces Covenant sets out the moral obligation of society towards members of the Armed Forces community. It enables businesses and charitable organisations to express their support, and commit to ways in which they can provide that support.
DMWS is immensely grateful to everyone who supports us. Whether making an individual or corporate donation; no matter how large or small, it all contributes to our work in supporting those who put their life at risk to serve our country.
