Medical and Dental

Being in the Royal Navy can require you to move home quite often. Living in different areas, going overseas, or maybe just moving closer to your family when your partner is deployed involves a host of changes including finding medical and dental cover as quickly as possible.

Naval Families Federation

the independent voice of royal naval and royal marines families

If you ever have a medical emergency in the family - a son, daughter, mother, father, or other close relative taken ill, the Royal Navy through the Naval Personal and Family Service or Royal Marines Welfare will offer appropriate levels of support.

Finding a Doctor and Dentist in a new area...

If you have to move to a new area of the country then finding local community services is made easy by simply contacting the HIVE or by accessing NHS Choices online.

In Scotland, patients may access NHS24 or by calling 08454 242424.

Naval Service families who experience difficulty in obtaining access to NHS dentistry should report this through either the Divisional chain or by contacting the Naval Families Federation . This will enable accurate data recording and subsequent reporting to the Chief Dental Officer.
