Hot off the press: DMWS 2017/2018 Impact Report We are pleased to share our latest DMWS Impact Report presenting our facts & figures, service overview, insights and case studies of 2017/2018. It is a year of celebrations, as 2018 marks DMWS’s 75th anniversary. Throughout our history, we’ve always responded to the challenges and opportunities we faced, which has made us what we are today: a highly responsive and professional medical welfare service. During World War 2 we were tasked to ‘provide a service aiding the sick and wounded at home and in the field’ to improve wellbeing and deliver capability. Since 1943 we have deployed to every major conflict and have received many prestigious awards for our service. To this day our Welfare Officers play a key role in supporting patients and their families during times of physical or mental ill health. Our aim is to encourage a positive approach to treatment, improve recovery, facilitate an earlier return to work and reduce the risk of readmission. As we move forward, our focus is to diversify even further, with the vision to provide our welfare support to all frontline services when they are in the patient care pathway.
