Discharged as fit but!!

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I recently had a chat with someone who had a similar problem but it was for PTSD & ended up getting a service medical pension.
    I was discharged as "being fit" despite having 2 ops in Haslar on my knee & on going problems in fact I asked the doc at Osprey if it would affect me signing on,& they said it would so i didn't go through the motions.
    A month after discharge my knee packed in again leading to 2 further ops as well as its got worse. I do have a war pension, so can anyone give any advice to see if i can get a medical pension?
    btw when assessing my war pension it appeared my docs had gone missing.
  2. As far as I know, if you were discharged P2 then you are not eligible for a medical pension - but it may be worth checking with the Veterans' Agency.
  3. Few of the chaps I work with went through the British Legion for claims for injuries sustained whilst serving.

    Give them a ring and get the ball rolling.
