  • 1 Comment

Guidance to support primary care clinicians identify and treat healthcare problems among combat veterans more effectively has been published by the Royal College of GPs, The Royal British Legion and charity Combat Stress.

The guidance looks at how best to care for veterans’ physical and mental health after they have left the forces and rejoined civilian life.

It provides advice on medical records and accessing priority treatment, along with dedicated sections including mental health needs, health behaviours, the provision of prostheses and hospital waiting lists.

    In addition to the guidance should be the re-instatement of a Military Hospital, Royal Hospital Haslar that closed in July 2009.
    Treating forces personnel in a military environment promotes recovery.

    A lost jewel in the military crown for our forces. - Financial shortsightedness.!!

    Shame....!
