SVC Recommendation 9: Funding for Multiple Injuries
The Scottish Government and NHS(S) should give consideration to whether the costs of specialist care for veterans who have suffered polytrauma should be funded through the National Services Division (NSD).
Scottish Government update:
The National Trauma Network referred to under Recommendation 8 will help Scotland’s most severely injured patients, ensuring they have the best chance of a speedy recovery from their injuries. The issue of the cost of specialist care could be considered by the Armed Forces Personnel & Veterans Health Joint Group’s Strategic Oversight Group.
