Health and Wellbeing
Many of us leave the Services with long-term injuries; mostly physical, but sometimes psychological. And the system in civilian life is much more complicated than turning up to sick parade and then doing as you are told. But while it often takes much longer than we have been used to, it doesn’t need to because the NHS has promised to fast-track Veterans with service-related conditions.
The first thing you will need to do when you leave the Services is find a GP; you will find most GPs in Scotland in this section. Apart from the NHS, there are many Veteran-focussed charities ready to help, so make use of them if you need to. You will find their details here too, so please explore this section; it has a lot to offer.
Priority treatment within the NHS in Scotland for a service related condition
Under long-standing arrangements since 1953, war pensioners are given priority NHS treatment for the conditions for which they receive a war pension or gratuity, unless there is an emergency case or another case that demands clinical priority. These priority treatment provisions were then extended to all veterans who have a condition that is likely to be related to their service.
As a result, veterans should receive priority treatment for health problems as a result of service to their country, unless there is an emergency case or another case that demands clinical priority.
Veterans should not be given priority treatment for conditions unrelated to service in the armed forces.
Further information is available Here
Information on specific NHS support for veterans in Scotland, as well as programmes and initiatives that you may access.
Friends and family, as well as health professionals, will also find helpful information on how best to signpost and treat veterans in need of primary and secondary health care.
Many of the health issues that veterans and their families can experience are identical to those occurring in the wider community. Sometimes however, those who have served feel that their needs are not fully understood by healthcare providers.
Recent initiatives have been aimed at improving understanding of the Armed Forces community, including the publication of a booklet for GPs and an online eLearning package.Please see Useful Resources section for more information.
