Can you use other bases/barracks sickbays if ill on leave

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone can help me, I am currently on Christmas leave until mid January but have become unwell. I am not registered to any GP around my home and not sure if it’s possible to be seen by gp in the local army barracks sickbay.

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Don't see why not. Give them a call, local guardroom number will be advertised either in the phone book or available courtesy of Messrs Google and Co.
If they can't, they may be able to advise you where you can be seen.
Or, call the NHS helpline. (Sorry don't know the number).

I was going to suggest that you speak to NSFPS when they open on Monday at 0800, but realised that you might need to see someone sooner. I'm not sure what kind of illness is affecting you and don't want to suggest waiting till Monday to speak to someone, if you really need to see a Doctor tomorrow.

I'm wondering whether the best thing for you would be to speak to the appropriate OOW for advice. I attach a list of the numbers issued for use over Christmas by NSFPS. If none of these is appropriate, say so and we will think of something else.

1. Speak to NHS 111 or go and see your local NHS walk-in centre if you need to see a medical professional within the next 24 hours.
2. Phone the OOW for teh appropriate base on the numbers above, and ask if you can speak to the Duty MA. Outline your problem to them, and they may be able to make you a booking at a near-by garrison or base. Any Army establishment is unlikely to have a Doctor available until they come back from leave (or recalled if necessary). There is no point just turning up at their gate without a booking.
3. If you feel you can’t make it back from leave, make sure you’ve seen a NHS centre and also had your details taken by the OOW/OOD of your unit.

4. Rest, hydrate, take pain relief as necessary.

Get better soon.
 
Thank you all for your replies and advice. Greatly appreciated. I’ll get on to the numbers you have provided first thing.
 
@Notsosalty. Not high on your to-do list as your health is your obvious priority;

It used to be the case that 'Days spent officially sick whilst on leave' would be credited back to your Annual Pusser's Leave allowance.*

Perhaps someone serving could kindly confirm/clarify and provide you with a JSP reference:
Calling @alfred_the_great or @northern-matelot ?


*Certainly applied to my civilian employees when in business after I left the RN.



Meanwhile - Best wishes & Get Well Soon.

I think that this may be covered in Paras 21.10 + 21.11 of JSP 760.
