Just a question maybe the Ivory Tower can answer. Foxy and Dui-Lai, I am already laughing at your replies, PM me! I would just hope it means more than a step back into the 1900's becoming orderlies/ HCA's again. It may be the easy option- suck it into the HCA trade! The CMT had potential written all over it when it was created but years of negelect and Clinical Governance has put paid to that. What was a potential for becoming a recognized Paramedic etc, will have the CMT damp dusting. Discuss.
