It is a sad fact that there remains an ignorance in relation to this type of injury throughout the services with many sufferers labelled as “biffs” as a result.
Unfortunately many NCO’s fail to appreciate the significance of cold injury and comments such as “it is just a bit of frost nip” are all too common.
It may be that your NCO’s have been ignoring sick chits and medical advice by requiring you to work out doors. Such futher exposure can delay recovery and even cause your condition to get worse.
If you feel that you are being bullied as a result of your injuries we will be able to talk you through the appropriate reporting chains and what steps you can take to meet this problem head on.
