COVID-19 vaccine Oxford-AstraZeneca and blood clotting
Recently there have been reports of an extremely rare but serious condition involving blood clots and unusual bleeding after AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccination. The national committee which recommends on vaccines has therefore recommended that patients under 40 years are no longer offered this vaccine for their first dose. If you have already had a first dose of AZ vaccine without suffering this rare side effect you should still complete the course with the AZ vaccine for your second dose, even if you are under 40. For more information please see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting/covid-19-vaccination-and-blood-clotting
Are you a Military Veteran (Ex-Armed Forces)?
Military Veterans - Priority NHS Care
The UK Government has pledged to support Military Veterans, Ex-Forces with priority NHS care.
Who is defined as a veteran? 'A veteran is someone who has served in the armed forces for at least one day in the regular or reservist forces'. There are around 4.5m veterans in the UK.
When servicemen and women leave the armed forces, their healthcare is the responsibility of the NHS.
All veterans are entitled to priority access to NHS hospital care for any condition as long as it's related to their service, regardless of whether or not they receive a war pension.
Veterans are encouraged to tell their GP about their veteran status in order to benefit from priority treatment if appropriate. Health related issues for veterans can manifest in a number of ways.
If you are a Military Veteran, please let reception, your GP or nurse know so we can update your medical records.
