The Royal British Legion in Wales says it working with both the Welsh Government and local health boards to ensure that ex-soldiers who have lost limbs while on active service get the treatment they deserve.
I think we need to be looking at a more holistic approach which brings in the armed forces champions which are now in place by local health boards and local authorities to provide not only that immediate care for a veteran, but also look at their wider needs
One ex-serviceman Peter Bowker of Connahs Quay, whose leg was amputated below the knee, says that after leaving the army he struggled to get fa new prosthetic limb as his local health authority did not have the cash.
When I moved back to Wales the first six months of being a civilian my prosthetic leg was being held together by duct tape.
I did eventually get the funding for a new one. More and more soldiers will be coming back to Wales without limbs and the government here needs to be prepared.
Recently the Royal British Legion wrote to a group of Welsh MPs saying there was a need to ensure veterans in Wales are able to make use of their right to priority access to medical treatment as they do in England.
