I served with The Royal Artillery from 1994 to 1999, whilst on a regimental exercise in Denmark in 1997, I sustained a serious injury to my right knee, at the time whilst on exercise I was examined by the regimental Medical Officer and she instructed my Troop Sargent Major that I needed medical treatment there and then, and that I should also be sent to Princess Alexandra's Hospital in London for further treatment. Not only was I not given anything more than anti inflammatory and pain killers, but after spending the remainder of the exercise (4 Days) in the back of my TSMs land rover, upon my return to the UK I was still lead to believe that I would still received medical treatment, instead I was signed off by the regiment for several months due to being unfit for duties, My regiment at that time was 104 Regiment Royal Artillery, I received no monies from them whilst signed off and later I was told by the same TSM that I was not entitled to any medical treatment either. From that point on, I have been suffering from my knee condition even though I have had a surgical procedure carried out on my knee which has not improved my condition, which has now after several years lead to other conditions I am now suffering from, including a hip condition and lower back pain, which my GP has told me is a knock on effect from my knee condition. In 2006 I instigated a claim with the Veterans Agency, and after several months I was awarded a gratuitous payment, as stated my condition has still continued to deter ate. Whilst my initial claim in 2006 was on going, I contacted the office of manning and Records in Glasgow for a copy of all my med docs and recently when I had to attend a medical board review, I discovered that there was no trace of the original accident that occurred in Denmark contained within the copies, I feel that my regiment failed in their duty of care and failed to make any kind of accident report regarding my injuries, hence why the veterans agency obviously had problems locating the accident in question. If anyone has any advise or guidence It would be very much appreciated. Thanks Update..... Hi again, just posting to update my inital thread to date April 2011, I have now been through the mill with the veterans agency so to speak, I have been tested by there medical board and at that time the MO stated there was nothing wrong lmfao, since then I have had an MRI scan which has confirmed that Iam in need of knee replacements, so now I am going for a tribunal against their discission as my consultant has blown everything they stated out of the window. Just one other point that came to light, when I finished in 1999 from the reg's my records show I was still on my TA regiments books until 31/03/2000, which meant I should have been entitled to my bounty, I was never paid my final year bounty, so just for the hell of it, would and could I be entiled to claim it now ?
