Off-topic but as you have raised an important point, priority treatment for veterans applies to conditions which are related to their service (but no longer have to be conditions for which they receive war pension or AFCS payments). Your doctor should definitely have been aware of the instruction, but in practice only a limited proportion of veterans really benefit from it. More details here: http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Militaryhealthcare/Veteranshealthcare/Pages/veterans.aspx . You're welcome to PM me for paperwork if your doctor continues to claim ignorance.
Further to that, for anyone else looking for information about priority health care for veterans, there is now a fairly comprehensive set of links about priority treatment in the different parts of the UK via the link below:
