The project

We launched a survey to ask military families how they access GP surgeries, dental care, mental health, social care and other services. 

Last summer, as part of the Army Basing Programme, 4,000 service personnel and their families relocated to Wiltshire from Germany, and we wanted to find out about how easy it has been for them to find new services and the continuity of care they have received after they have been transferred.

We were also keen to know how health services in Wiltshire compared to where they lived before.
