Have they got it wrong again or what. It would appear that as of the 01 Apr 03 all nursing services within the armed services now have a common terms of service. i.e. no time promotion for the PMRAFNS & minimum time in each rank before going to board. In principle not a bad idea, so where have they gone wrong. Answer they have made it retrospective to all those currently serving. So those that are due promotion now, have the recommendations but no longer fit the criteria are not being promoted. So hows that affecting the current serving QA, on their return today from the total cock up & waste of time & effort they call the Gulf War (for those that dont know they set 33 Fld Hosp up handed it over to 202 then moved to Camp Coyote & sat around for 3 weeks doing nothing, so they are all slightly pis**d to say the least). A number of them went straight into military admin signed off then went to British Legion solicitors, their case being career foul in that under contractual law it is illegal to change a contract/terms of service, without first consulting the individuals & two them agreeing to the change. Me thinks there will be some quite wealth Ex QAs around in the next year or so.
