Defence Medical Services (DMS) are commissioned by the MOD to provide primary, dental, rehabilitation, mental health, overseas, occupational and operational healthcare services for Service personnel and mobilised reservists. All hospital care is provided by the NHS.

All personnel should register with their local unit Medical Centre and this should be their first port of call for any health issues.  However, in the case of out of hours emergencies which require immediate and urgent medical care, call an ambulance or attend the nearest Accident and Emergency unit.
