Reserves Day is taking place on 21 June this year, which offers the trust the opportunity to publicly recognise and celebrate the contribution reservists make to our country and NHS.

The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are integral to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas, particularly providing capability in specialist areas such as medical and cyber.

Reservists are everywhere, but you might not know it. So on Reserves Day, we’re inviting our Reservists to wear their uniform while they are at work.

Reservists are currently supporting operations worldwide including in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bahrain, Estonia, South Sudan, Cyprus and Somalia.

However, the contribution they make to our Armed Forces often goes unrecognised. As such an annual Reserves Day was created to highlight and recognise the valuable contribution Reservists make to our Armed Forces

As an employer this year we want to pledge our support to dedicated individuals who often go unsung within the Reserve Forces.
