Faults with the Medical Discharge Process
Some of the issues with the current medical discharge process are:
- Often veterans are discharged because of physical injuries without getting a proper diagnosis of any mental health issues. The result can be that many Veterans do not get the treatment they need for mental health issues.
- The MoD has a duty to make sure there is a smooth transition from MoD medics, into the care of the NHS. In a significant number of the cases we’ve handled, there has been little to no appropriate communication between the military authorities and the NHS.
If you believe you have not been treated how you should have been through a medical discharge, then we recommend you get legal advice to see if you could make a civil personal injury claim.
