Seriously injured leavers protocol

This publication was withdrawn on 9 April 2015

This page has been archived and has now been superseded by Tri-service welfare referral protocol and referral form VWS form 1.

This protocol aims to ensure the identification and ongoing support for those service leavers who are likely to be medically discharged due to severe physical or mental disablement.



The identification of service leavers who are likely to fall within this category is based upon medical criteria, whilst the support is achieved through the close working of Ministry of Defence in-service and post service welfare groups.
