PRIORITY FOR WAR DISABLED VETERANS AND BATTLE CAUSALITIES IN OPD OF ARMED FORCES HOSPITALS

War Disabled Veterans form a very distinguished class of veterans. A large number of War Disabled Veterans/ Battle causalities are arnputation cases, amputated due to injuries sustained in war and war like conditions and have restricted mobility. In view of this special disposition, they rightfully deserve certain privileges. AFMS has always remained committed in providing them priority in AFMS hospitals.

Henceforth, War Disabled Veterans/Battle Causalities (self only) may be offered Specialist consultation directly at the OPDs of Armed Forces hospitals on OPD days, without obtaining a referral from the ECHS Polyclinics. However, these veterans will continue to avail services of their dependant polyclinic for routine illnesses.

Necessary instructions may please be issued to all concerned.

This has the approval of the DGAFMS.
