The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is committed to ensuring that the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) delivers for those who make a claim and there are mechanisms of assessment and accountability in place to ensure that this is the case.

The AFCS Quinquennial Review (QQR) takes place every five years to ensure the AFCS remains fit for purpose and to identify opportunities for improvement. The final report was published today:

The MOD will consider the recommendations of the AFCS QQR, and the Government's response will be published later this year.
