SIGN UP TO MILITARY HOSPITAL REVOLT
[Daily Mail-Monday ,August 27,2007]
SOLDIERS and their FAMILIES are staging an unprecedented
revolt to demand the reinstatement of
DEDICATED MILITARY HOSPITAL.
Hundreds of serving personnel along with 30,000 friends
and relatives have signed an on-line petition submitted to
They argue that wounded troops have particular needs and
should not be surrounded by civilians who have no understanding of the
aftermath of war.
DEDICATED MILITARY HOSPITAL
THE ROYAL HOSPITAL
was decommissioned in March,2007 after more than 250 years' service.
This month it emerged that the only NHS ward set aside
for soldiers, at Selly Oak Hospital in Birmingham, is under intolerable
pressure through rising casualty rates.
It has only 14 beds, but in a recent four-week period 145
personnel were flown back from Iraq and Afghanistan for treatment.
Families, soldiers and veterans are becoming increasingly
angry at the lack of specialist care.
But a Ministry of Defence spokesman insisted:
'It is no longer clinically viable to maintain even a
single military hospital. It is not just military hospitals being phased
out, but small civilian hospitals too
'Today a modern hospital needs a minimum population of
250,000 to make it viable. If you add the specialities that we need for
war, such as neuro-surgury, we would need a forces population of a
million. But the whole of the UK Armed Forces only number some 200,000,
most of them fit and healthy.

THE REALITY OF MILITARY
1) Cost should not be a factor
(After all the GOVERNMENT spent £167 billion last year
alone on over 800 QUANGOS and the waste elsewhere in the economy is
enormous as the National Audit Office can support.)
2) Hospitals - Military or Local are a necessary part
of the needs of the Armed Forces and the civilian population.
(Apart from the comments already made by the Army Chief
Sir Richard Dannatt and others,the GOVERNMENT needs to understand that
patients prefer and need to be treated in the main
