Consultation description

Defence Statistics propose to cease production of the ‘Annual tracking of Afghanistan very seriously injured/seriously injured UK operational casualties’ Official Statistic bulletin.

This has been proposed due to a drop off in the number of casualties sustained in Afghanistan, a fall in the number of personnel receiving specialist care and a perceived reduction of interest for the report from inside and outside the Ministry of Defence (MOD). Please note that the MOD will continue to monitor the healthcare of the personnel very seriously injured (VSI) and seriously injured (SI) in Afghanistan.
