how many veteran armed forces personell are aware of a covernant made between the M.O.D. and the N.H.S. that gtves prioriity to service veterans...
Hello Rodney - I have only just caught up with your thread. I was not aware of such a Covenant and it doesn't seem that anyone else is as no one else has responded. How is one supposed to flag this up in any medical situation? I can almost see a shrug of the shoulders and/or a blank look of total disbelief. Would it, for instance, get a priority appointment with a GP? Knowledge of such a Covenant could simply be denied on the grounds that no one had actually been informed of it in the first place. Do you have any more information? Thanks, Kim. ps - of course it could just apply to hospital in-patient treatment.
We all know that the so-called civil servants at the MOD are nothing short of a bob or two. There was a covenant that all ex-service, were entitled to health care at service hospitals. I am unsure if this still is the case, but worth testing the water with Birmingham set up, supposed to have two wards at the Queen Elizabeth hospital,also the same set up in Surrey, All a bloody big farce, MOD really do not give a damn, that is why there are so many ex-service people not being treated properly There is still a need for service hospitals today, not as many as we had, but still a call for them, but as I said there are muppets within the MOD, it is all about money money money.
