Andrew Murphy had a promising career in the Army until Bosnia proved a tour too far, and brought on PTSD (Post Trauma Stress Disorder), a largely unrecognised medical condition. He wants people to understand the way in which ex-service personnel are still treated by what can too often be seen as a heartless and uncaring society. It is not tea and sympathy that is needed by the thousands of ex-service men and women suffering from PTSD, but change and change that needs to happen sooner rather than later. Appendix A helps the reader to know if he or she is suffering from PTSD. Appendix B details the right that war pensioners have to treatment. Appendices C and D give information about a Health Service Guideline which reiterates your right to have priority ptreatment if you are a war pensioner. Appendix E gives details of the author's own website which is there to help PTSD sufferers. Appendix F deals with the issue pf anxiety and panic attacks, a real problem for most PTSD sufferers. Appendix G gives the NICE Guidelines for PTSD.

Review:

"For Queen and Country THEN WHAT?" should be a Must Read for all medical students and doctors. Extremely informative on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), seeing it is written not by a doctor but by a patient. Every medical student, doctor, and nurse, must read this book. --Dr Felix Konotey-Ahulu

About the Author:

Andrew Murphy started his Service career in the Royal Navy in 1983, and after a short break he was fast tracked into the Army and trained to be a chef in the Army Catering Corps. He met his wife Linda in the Army where she was a WRAC trainee. He says it was love at first sight as far as he was concerned, and he pays tribute to her support for him during his illness and for giving him the strength to carry on with life. He was asked to be part of the guideline group that looks at all the current and recognised treatments for PTSD and to create a set of Guidelines that theNHS would have to follow for the care and treatment of PTSD.
