the community NEED YOUR HELP

On September 21st 2023 at the All-Tests Reunion, the Nuclear Veteran Community launched a legal challenge to the Ministry of Defence to provide their full medical records, which they have been denied access to over many years. Many veterans, widows and descendants have been denied access to their records or received partial records. Together with McCue Jury and Partners this action will ensure that the Ministry of Defence provides the information that these families deserve.

please support and share the funding page

Please share this message via email or messenger to everyone you know. The community raised over £50,000and have now issued a letter before action to the Ministry of Defence. Even a small donation would help the community reach our goal. Thank you in advance for your support, and again, please share the crowdfunder on social media and to your friends, family, and email contacts.

Dear X,

This week I/my grandad/uncle/whoever joined other nuclear test veterans and their families in launching a legal case to sue the Ministry of Defence to obtain our missing medical records. The fact that these records have been withheld from us, affecting our health and happiness, for so long has been a source of severe suffering for decades, and enough is enough. It is time for the truth.

 

The only way to force the MoD to be honest with us is a High Court case, which will cost an estimated £100,000. We have all donated what we can afford, and now I'm asking you to do the same: https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/nuclear-veterans-case/

 

Please send the link on to at least another 10 people to help our cause. This is not just about veterans and their families - this is about making sure our government treats us all with respect and honesty, that cover-ups stop and the truth always comes out. It affects us all equally, just as the work the veterans did in the 1950s and 1960s has protected us all equally ever since. With your help, we can bring this ordeal to an end.

 

In November 2022, the Mirror reported for the first time how blood tests were taken from nuclear test veterans on the orders of Whitehall mandarins, and the results were being withheld from them and their families.

Shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry said it was "almost certainly a crime" and Manchester mayor Andy Burnham called it "a criminal cover-up on an industrial scale".

 

Now the Mirror has updated their investigation with further shocking evidence. It includes more than 200 pages of archive documents which you can read here, Parliament and MPs being given alternative versions of the truth, and cloud samplers who have found all health data from their time at the nuclear tests are entirely missing - while the rest of their medical records are complete.

 

The Mirror has demanded the Prime Minister act now to open the blood files to the nuclear community, and reveal where the missing records have gone, and who ordered their removal. You can see the evidence for yourself, we have made it available on this page to download.
