A 3-year follow-on piece of work to the original Scottish Veterans’ Health Study (2012-2015), to be carried out by Dr Beverly Bergman. The original study provided the first insight into the long-term health of 57,000 veterans and compared their health profile to non-veterans. In this follow-on work, a further 10 years of birth cohort data will be incorporated to examine important mental health outcomes in younger veterans, and will include additional health outcomes such as post-Service amputations and joint replacement surgery.
