The REDARC service aims to support and help serving officers and their families cope with the practical and emotional effects resulting from the diagnosis of a serious illness.
As part of the service, the claimant will automatically be assigned to a member of the REDARC nurse team, who in turn will contact the member to introduce the service.
In addition to providing ongoing advice and support, the personal nurse adviser may arrange extra help if clinically appropriate, eg a one-off home visit from a specialist nurse, a course of physiotherapy, a course of counselling, or similar.
The personal nurse adviser can also put the patient in contact with specialist charities and self-help groups, and give advice on specialist equipment to aid function. These services are provided free of charge.
