star this property answer text <p>There are three Medical Deployability Standard (MDS) categories for the Armed Forces. Medically Fully Deployable (MFD) personnel are those medically fit for duty with no employment limitations. Medically Limited Deployable (MLD) personnel are medically fit for duty with minor employment limitations. MLD personnel may have a medical condition or functional limitation that prevents the meeting of all MFD requirements. Medically Not Deployable (MND) personnel are medically fit for duty with major employment limitations. MND personnel are not fit to deploy on Operations but may be deployable on UK based exercises.</p><p> </p><p>The table below provides the number (n) and percentage of UK Regular Armed Forces in each MDS category, by Service as at 1 April for each year since 2010. These figures include full time trained and serving personnel against requirement.
