Healthcare guidance

The healthcare pages on the UKGov.net website have recently been updated. The changes have been made in order to improve the clarity of the guidance and to ensure that you can locate the relevant information depending upon your status.

When you access the main healthcare page, you will need to select one of two links; ‘Military (including families)’ or ‘UK-based civilians (including families)’.
These links will take you through to a new page where if you are military you will select either ‘Active Duty’, ‘Spouses’ or ‘Children’. UK-based civilians will select either ‘Adults’ or ‘Children’. All of the guidance and links are applicable solely to that group of people.

A number of useful handouts are also available on Destiny, and are outlined below:

Dental handout

Civilian Emergency healthcare handout

Military-Emergency healthcare handout

You may wish to print out and keep to hand as it provides guidance on what to do in an emergency.

Dependants of military personnel (spouses and children) may also wish to print out the handout providing guidance on dental treatment to take with them when they visit the dentist*.

All handouts will be reviewed every three months. Please check Destiny periodically to see if any updates have been made.

 

*Please note this handout is not applicable to active duty military personnel
