The Directorate Honours and Awards (DH&A) may require access to your Defence Health Records to support your application for awards. DH&A will only access your health records if you consent and if your claim requires an illness or injury to be verified. If you do not provide consent DH&A may be unable to verify your eligibility for awards. All health information is treated sensitively and will not be used for other purposes or further disclosed without your consent unless required or authorised by law.
I hereby consent to DH&A accessing my health records for the purpose of verifying eligibility for awards (optional).
The information you enter into this form will be transmitted to DH&A. You will receive an on-screen notification confirming your application has been received. Please record your application number for future reference. (Note: no email will be sent to you).
I acknowledge that most applications take up to four months to process. This time allows DH&A to research historical documents, seek approval from the delegate, and to engrave and dispatch awards. A timeframe for the Australian Operational Service Medal Border Protection cannot be given as the process is dependant on information supplied by each Service.
The information I have provided is true and correct and I may be prosecuted under section 136.1 and 137.1 of the Criminal Code 1995 if I make false statements in this application.
To request a hard-copy of the application form, please call 1800 333 362.
