Announcing the decision, David Cameron said that the government will work with service charities, including Help for Heroes and The British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association (Blesma) as well as NHS specialists, to create new high-quality NHS facilities for prosthetic limb provision and rehabilitation, with the aim to bring them up to the same standard as the Defence Medical Service at Headley Court.

Jerome Church, the general secretary of Blesma, said: "Over the last few years, our young veterans preparing to move on into civilian life have become increasingly concerned about the standard of prosthetic support they will receive from the NHS. We are now much more confident that the NHS will be able to provide the prosthetic support veterans need and deserve - for the rest of their lives. We are also delighted that this enhanced support will be extended to all veterans who lost limbs in earlier conflicts."

There will still be rumblings of complaint about injured servicemen getting fast-track treatment.  There's a reason they do; its called The Military Covenant.  Read more about it in my article of 16 June 2011.
