£11 million funding boost to improve NHS care for war veterans

Injured war heroes are to receive improved care from the NHS.

The government is making £11 million available over the next 2 years to spend on prosthetics and improve rehabilitation services across the country for ex-servicemen and women who are amputees.

This funding will ensure veterans are able to access a high level of prosthetic and rehabilitation care - similar to that which the Armed Forces provides for men and women currently serving in the Army, Navy and Air Force.
