Anyone know where they are formally laid down pse?
 
Do you mean med requirements for personnel or FET/OETs?

It's laid down in the HERRICK Mounting Instruction. Basically MFD and the rest need MRA or their App 9 completing. Apologies, that is a pretty broad brush answer but check the MI.

Many thanks for that and I should have know that. I actually got asked the question by someone else so I'll point them at this thread.
 
Depends on the role on tour. The risk balance case must be completed so MLD doesn't necessarily mean Main Operating Base bound.
 
Thank you for the answers, trying to figure out why a soldier with a legacy injury from Op Telic (3 mortars hit him) would be sent on Op Herrick without the cortizone injections that are needed to function daily. He was sent by a civvi doc on the basis he got his injection on arrival at Bastion but the hospital does not offer this sort of treatment. Illegal deployment?? The situation is a long winded battle and yes I am an ex crab fat Army wife......scorned......hell hath no fury.
 
He was A4 L3 M6 E2 MLD but needed a risk assesment prior to deployment. Getting the injections was the only reason he was allowed to deploy. What does MDS stand for?

Yep 3 service complaints in and 3 for Medical Neg. "Illegal Deployment"......words of the Adj himself.

<<Checks spent most of her life in an RHQ>>

That's a pile of shit.

Medical Deployment Standard (MDS). See pm.

As for illegal deployment, I think the Adj that said that may have been mistaken in his choice of words. For illegal insert either mistaken or poorly researched.

lol mint replies, just looking for basics on a JSP's, med forms etc not abuse. Cheers everyone!
I'm sorry.

Those bins need emptying.
 
I was quite shocked when he said that too but its all being investigated, I just wanted to know the in's and out's medical wise so we had a leg to stand on. Bottom line Im trying to fight for what my husband needs and that is surgery, 6 years over due after being hit by 3 mortars trying to help another lad, why keep him back from one tour due to the same injury but send him on the recent one when said injury has worsened??? Just something not quite right. Anyhoo thanks all who have helped, off to read more JSP's and med stuffs.
 
Bins done this morning, house cleaned......Im a good Army wife........now off for a gossip to find out who's with who's husband.......brew anyone?

Sounds like he needs a P7 downgrading if can't deploy without regular treatment, once a proper military MO gets his hands on the case.
