Free medical and dental care
It's important to remain healthy in the Navy, and fit for duty. So you'll receive free healthcare services ashore and at sea, provided by highly trained doctors, dentists and nurses working in modern, well-equipped clinics and hospitals.
Free sport and fitness facilities
You'll find everything you need to play sport and keep fit on base, plus special interest clubs for activities such as dragon boat racing, skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Ships and submarines have gym equipment too plus other avenues for exercise.
You may have to move around during your Navy career, so we provide assistance with housing. During training you'll live on base; then after that whether you rent or buy, Defence may help with the costs including providing home loan subsidies.
