A former soldier who had suffered post traumatic stress disorder following an incident whilst he was on a tour of duty was to be compensated for the degree to which his symptoms would have been ameliorated if he had been referred to the medical officer and had received treatment, but he could not receive damages for the degree to which his condition was exacerbated by his subsequent conviction and imprisonment for an offence which, on the balance of probabilities, he would not have committed if he had received treatment.

[2005] EWHC 1646 (QB)
