    Subject: Petition for Military Hospitals

    Now this is worth your attention folks:

    If you have one to two minutes and agree with this could you please sign the petition at the link below. If you have received this from another source then please accept my apologies but I didn't know that you had already got it!

    For every death you hear about in Iraq or Afghanistan there are countless more casualties that never get reported on the news. The current situation sees injured servicemen and women being brought back to the UK and put in random hospitals, often away from where their friends and family live.

    These servicemen and women , who are often on their own, are put in wards with normal civilian patients who have no concept of the environment these individuals have just been extracted from. There have also been a number of cases of these injured personnel then being verbally abused by Islamic civilian patients when they realise they have just returned from Iraq/ Afghanistan.



    This petition is asking for the government to bring back dedicated Military Hospitals in the UK so that injured servicemen and women can be cared for in a safe and dignified environment with staff and fellow patients who understand the situation that they have just returned from. Please take one or two minutes to fill out the Downing Street Petition on behalf of our injured servicemen and women bearing in mind we all know what the damage of war can do. Our comrades returning from Iraq & Afghanistan with horrific injuries to a health care situation that is a joke.

    With our troops being deployed in greater numbers we must go back to the dedicated care that they fully deserve - so please lend your support to the petition to the Prime Minister on the Downing Street Petition Web Site.

    The petition is:

    We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to bring back dedicated Military Hospitals to provide adequate facilities (non HS) for members of the Armed Forces who are injured or disabled in the course of their duties'

    Please visit before the close on 6th August 2007.

    If you do sign you will receive an email from No 10 with a link to confirm your signature.

    PLEASE PASS ON TO ALL YOUR CONTACTS IN YOUR ADDRESS BOOK

    If you do as requested I suggest that you address your mail to one person and put all the others as Bcc, that way your address book remains private.

    Sincerely yours
