Original consultation


A proposal to cease publication of the quarterly Official Statistic report that tracks the care provided to personnel injured on operations in Afghanistan at the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine and the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre.

This consultation ran from

Consultation description

Defence Statistics propose to cease production of the Quarterly Afghanistan UK patient treatment statistics Royal Centre for Defence Medicine (RCDM) and Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Headley Court 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 number of patients treated at RCDM and DMRC for injuries sustained on operations in Afghanistan.
