Casualty Procedures

Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre (JCCC) The JCCC is primarily responsible for monitoring and actioning certain procedures for Service personnel if they become notifiable casualties, both in the UK and overseas.

These roles ensure that the nominated Emergency Contact is notified appropriately and as quickly as possible should an individual become a notifiable casualty. Notification is carried out by a Casualty Notification Officer (CNO). The JCCC is also responsible for authorising Compassionate Leave Travel from overseas for Service personnel, their dependants based abroad, and mobilised reservists and auxillaries.

Dangerously Ill - Forwarding of Relatives (DILFOR)

The JCCC will authorise, and in the case of travel overseas, make arrangements for DILFOR travel. This allows two people to be moved at public expense to visit a service person at their bedside if they are listed as Very Seriously Ill (VSI) , Seriously Ill (SI), Incapacitating Illness/Injury (III) or Unlisted (UL) and the medical authorities have recommended such a visit.
