8 MoD/Joint Medical Command Joint Medical Command MoD (Chief of Defence Personnel) deliver (support): Tri-service welfare and recovery Chain of Command looks after/owns service personnel under their command (Single Service or Tri Service) Transition Recovery MoD (Joint Medical Command) still commission/provide (supporting) healthcare : Operational Care Primary Care Rehabilitation Community Mental Health Inpatient Mental Health (NHS Provided) n.b. note supporting/supported tension that we understand 8

9 Obligations “The NHS and its public sector partners need to work together to help one another to achieve their objectives. …. This includes, in particular, demonstrating progress against the Government’s priorities of: upholding the Government’s obligations under the Armed Forces Covenant; The Covenant says : The Armed Forces Community should enjoy the same standard of, and access to, healthcare as that received by any other UK citizen in the area they live. Personnel injured on operations should be treated in conditions which recognise service needs For family members, primary healthcare may be provided by the MOD in some cases (eg when accompanying Service personnel posted overseas). And … should retain their relative position on any NHS waiting list, if moved around the UK due to the Service person being posted. Veterans … should receive priority treatment where it relates to a condition which relates to.. their service, subject to clinical need Those injured in service should be cared for in a way which reflects the Nation’s moral obligation …with professionals who have an understanding of Armed Forces culture 9

13 Issues Very poor data: £15M or £170M? Philosophical Differences: “ The Armed Forces Community is entitled to appropriate recognition for the unique Service which it has given, and continues to give, to the Nation, and the unlimited liability which the Service person assumes” AF Covenant “Only clinical features taken into account: The NHS CB must make decisions fairly about funding treatments and not on the basis of age, sex, sexuality, race, religion, lifestyle, occupation, family status (including responsibility for caring for others) social position, financial status etc. unless these directly affect the expected clinical benefit that an individual will derive from a treatment” NHS England Interim Standard Operating Procedures 13
