The NHS is already supposed to do this, all it needs is for your GP to mention in his referral letter that you are an an ex serviceman or still serving, The NHS managers that sift the letters are then supposed to give you priority. It doesnt always happen.
Like my ex 25 mile sniper who was not surprisingly somewhat hard of hearing, aged 89 they saw him pretty quickly for his hearing test but was then told he had to go on a waiting list for a digital hearing aid. Currently 8 years in my area. oh, how we laughed when he came back to tell me
There seems to be a bit of misunderstanding, hope this clarifies, (Doubt it as it is from the MOD)
Report from Press Association Sun/Mon.
The Government is considering plans to issue special veterans identity cards to millions of former members of the armed forces, the Ministry of Defence has said.
Kevan Jones has backed plans to issue ID cards to ex-service personnel
The cards would help ex-servicemen and women get priority NHS treatment, access to housing and discounts on public transport.
Minister for Veterans Kevan Jones said the Government needed "to make it happen".
He told the Independent: "We will provide veterans' ID cards so the person can say 'I have served in the services' and get priority access to treatment."
A Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said: "We are actively investigating the options for the introduction of an ID card for veterans that could guarantee identity thereby helping to secure access to services and discounts."
It is believed as many as four million people would be eligible to join the scheme, which could be introduced next year.
Similar systems in the US and France offer subsidised travel and discounts from private companies
