Have you been wounded whilst serving in Iraq? Have you received the proper medical treatment?

An investigation is under way into the case of a wounded Iraq veteran reportedly forced to spend a night in hospital lying in his own faeces. Jamie Cooper was treated at Birmingham's Selly Oak Hospital.

A charity has also claimed troubled British veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are waiting up to 18 months for NHS mental health treatment.

Are you a soldier that has been injured whilst serving in Iraq? What has life been like since? We want to hear your experiences?
