Summary: Medical help is provided to working seafarers and their dependants and children (under 18) whose illness is of grave concern to the seafarer. Also provides medical help to young people training as cadets to the marine industry. Help is offered to those qualifying on completion of an information form (from Dreadnought) and provision of a referral letter from their Doctor.
The Dreadnought Medical Service - often called simply "the Dreadnought" - is a facility offering priority medical treatment to eligible seafarers through the medical services at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust in London. Its principal aim is to enable serving seafarers to return to work as soon as possible by providing treatment in a shorter timescale than may normally be offered at a seafarer's local NHS hospital.
