Were you deployed to a NHS hospital, ambulance service, medical centre, a Nightingale Hospital or other healthcare facility during the Covid pandemic from 2020 onwards, and suffered, or continue to suffer, from Covid or other symptoms? If so, you may be able to claim compensation.
Military personnel from the British Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy were part of the UK’s Covid-19 response both at home and overseas. The Armed Forces were engaged in a major role during the pandemic.
In 2020, the MoD confirmed the Armed Forces response to Covid-19 had become the biggest homeland military operation in recent times, being involved in rolling out the vaccination programme, testing, administering injections, and other roles.
Hundreds of military medics and general duties personnel deployed to Covid hotspots across the UK in late 2021 and early 2022, assisting in providing patient care, checking in patients, and conducting basic checks.
More than 300 military personnel were also deployed across England and Wales as ambulance drivers and front line support.
Approximately, 34,000 military personnel were deployed to support the UK pandemic over the course of more than 2 years.
Hilary Meredith Solicitors is investigating potential claims that the Ministry of Defence may have failed to provide proper, or any adequate protection or training, to military personnel leading to members of the Armed Forces contracting Covid-19 or other injury, illness or disease.
Symptoms of long Covid include fatigue, feeling short of breath, loss of smell, muscle aches, memory problems, dizziness, joint pain, loss of taste, and rashes.
As well as there being the possible failure to provide appropriate, or any PPE, there may be a failure to diagnose, investigate or treat you appropriately.
