The following info has been taken from the Royal Marine’s Association website.                                                                                        Subject: Armed Forces Covenant
This is something we are entitled to but very few of us know about it.
Action:
First It is important that your GP and consultant are aware that you are a veteran. Do this by asking them to add code 13jy to your records, this flags up that you are a veteran.
This is a quote from the NHS website……..
“All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS care (including hospital, primary or community care) for conditions associated with their time within the armed forces (service-related).
But this is always subject to clinical need and doesn’t entitle you to jump the queue ahead of someone with a higher clinical need.”
If the NHS service you’re dealing with is unaware of priority treatment, you’re actively encouraged to tell them about it and ensure you have told them you have served.
