AN NHS trust is launching a new campaign to mark Armed Forces Day on Saturday.

Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust (Bridgewater) is encouraging former members of the armed forces in Leigh to find out if they could be entitled to priority treatment.

The trust offers priority healthcare treatment to any former members of the armed forces, including reservists, for any illness or condition relating to their time in service.

Posters and leaflets will be distributed to health centres, veterans’ charities and community venues.
