What happens with injuries during basic?

I was just wondering what is the case with injuries at Raleigh? I'm sure many people will suffer all kinds. I was put on hold with my application for 5 month because of an injury which is now fully recovered. During basic would you be sent home or would you be given a chance to recover there or what? Or would it depend on which week you're in?

It would depend on the nature of your injury and whether it is something that you have had previously.

If you get the injury during training, you'll receive treatment from the Navy. If it's an on-going thing during training or if the severity of the injury requires, you could be moved into a separate division which is essentially a rehab division. I'm sure someone else will give you more info if you require though!

While I was at Raleigh, we had a few in my class get put in Crean (rehab division) due to injury. I think the longest you'll stay in there is around 2 months, then they'll start looking at sending you home to rejoin at a later date, so as long as your injury is fixed in that time you'll just be put into another division where you left off (e.g halfway through week 5, you'll join a class going into week 5)

Obviously you want to avoid getting backclassed if possible but being injured is not the end of the world. Minor injuries (sprains etc) are not enough to get you backclassed unless you miss something important like Dartmoor

It depends on the severity. Some 'work' through the injury but others can't go on.

In my lads class a couple of years ago, one lad dislocated his shoulder - obvious back class until fixed. He was sat in the drill shed whilst the rest of his class passed out - both him and the class were gutted.
Another lad 'worked' through intense back pain and passed out of Raleigh with the class. Got to Collingwood where they discovered kidney tumours - obviously had them before joining. Poor bugger passed away 9 months later.
Would he have been better off disclosing his pain earlier? No-one knows for certain but part of me says yes.
Don't know what I'm trying to say here really - apart from the fact that the mob will look after you if you have an injury during training, the last thing you want to do is get back classed but if it means eventually passed of Raleigh into the real world then its worth it. And the Navy has put time and money into getting you to that point - they want you to succeed.
