Veterans’ Prosthetic Panel Funding

To increase veterans’ ease of accessing innovative prosthetic products, the NHS introduced the Veterans’ Prosthetic Panel (VPP) funding in 2012. Additional to established military centres, such as Headley Court, this funding ensures that veterans can access high quality prosthetics, regardless of the Disablement Service Centre (DSC) that they attend.

Veterans’ Prosthetic Panel Funding

Who is eligible for Veterans’ Prosthetic Panel funding?

Note: Veterans who have lost a limb whilst in military service or after they have left the military but is not attributable to service e.g. civilian road traffic accident, are not eligible for VPP funding, but can continue to access services as usual through their local DSC.

How to apply for funding
Your local Disablement Services Centre will need to provide the support to you in order to apply for funding with the Panel. How the process works:

The deadline for applications for panel consideration is 10 working days before the VPP meeting date. The VPP meets on the third Tuesday of every month.
