The following table shows the total number of new patient referrals, for a course of treatment, of armed forces personnel to all 15 of MOD's regional rehabilitation units (RRUs). Full figures are not available for 2003-04.
|1 April to 31 March||Number of new patient referrals|
It should be noted that patient referrals cover a wide range of injuries, only a minority of which have been sustained on current operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.
As well as having the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre as its core task, Headley Court has also hosted the regional rehabilitation unit for London and overseas patients (if they are not treated by the one of the two RRUs located in Germany). Figures for referrals to the Headley Court RRU are included in the answer referred to previously, as well as in the table. These figures could be separated out only at disproportionate cost.
