I've been hearing on the radio all day that the MOD hasn't issued Larium without a risk assessment since 2013.I know of someone who was prescribed and issued Larium in late 2013 despite having a history of clinical depression recorded on his med notes. In my non medical opinion there appears to have been a somewhat cavalier attitude to the dispensing of this particular drug.
Maybe they did a risk assessment. And where were you going in May 2015?I've been hearing on the radio all day that the MOD hasn't issued Larium without a risk assessment since 2013.
That's total bollocks as I along with the rest of my Bn had boxes of the stuff thrown at us during our pre deployment administration check in May 2015.
Do they?You realise they do RAs before, not during. And where were you going?
Hackle has explained the procedure, something you failed to do originally.Do they?
It's funny that because in the last month I've sat down with the MO who carried out an RA whilst I was sat in front of him. He asked me a series of questions regarding my health and then explained the possible side effects of the anti malarials he was about to prescribe to me.
Whilst 12 months ago a different med centre was dishing them out like an American teenager delivering newspapers.
I didn't fail to explain the procedure, I just stated that it didn't take place, you're the one who made the assumption that the RA involved someone going:Hackle has explained the procedure, something you failed to do originally.
