CRITICAL CARE STATIONS (any info)

#1
I am aware that the new Critical Care Stations are going to replace the beloved Dressing Stations but does anyone have the plan diagrams or manning or Eqpt requirements for these beasts. I am for change if it is for the better but surely serving members of the RAMC would be better equipped for the introduction of new concepts if they were informed well in advance.

Can anyone advise ??

Come on chaps, lets not get too excited about something that increases capability and more importantly allows for Damage Control Surgery at R2+.
Why is it, that when the AMS want to move forward some of us choose to mock? Instead of slagging the Nurses (I am not one) get educated and get even!!!!!

By the way QMan, not all decisions are made at AMD!!!!

I am all for change that improves the capabilities of the AMS. However I feel that changes to doctrine and the way we do business should be widely circulated around all ranks within the AMS before it is put into the wider Army sector as has happened with the CCS concept. LE course is currently teaching CCS yet at the Med Regt's soldiers who will be setting them up know absolutely nothing ????

Plus could anyone possibly advice as to where the extra manpower will actually come from to support this increase. The establishment may change but the amount joining will not ?

Perhaps, along with the rest of the dinosaurs you should go back there as well?

If you really dislike what we do that much, perhaps it is time for you to go and let someone younger contribute.

I had a briefiing on aforementioned subject recently and I was informed that the extra manning for the new CCS would be 400 across the board and to be in place by 2008.

Anyone heard anything different?

As for Equipment, don't know, suggest you badger the RQ type on these means...

Any change which improves the medical provision to the soldier on the ground is good. However, we as a corps tend to jump on what sounds like a good idea at the time and realise that it may not be the case.

Over the past few years I keep hearing that 'we must reach NHS standards in what we do. Another good idea, but sometimes it can be very difficult.

If we go back to the basics:

Army Surgeon = NHS equal
Army Nurse = NHS Equal
HCA = NHS Equal
Physio = NHS Equal
Cmt = ??????????

I think you will soon be seeing a new 7005 for Med Regt's which I suspect will be published not too soon after the FAS has been released !

So YES is the answer and I agree with you 100% we have'nt seen fully established units in over 6 years so the mear suggestion of an increase in manning makes my eyeballs stare to the gods and ask:

Please improve our recruiting and our retention before even considering the paper exercise of an increase to the 7005.

Apparently we are meeting all our recruiting targets! ... where are all the bums on seats? Probably stuck in Common Core School getting back classed

The Critical Care Station is a DS+ with a larger Surgical Facility and Holding capability. I have seen the proposed 7005 which encompasses the CCS and the manpower requirement will never be fulfilled. As to the plans and layout of the CCS I have not seen anything.

In my current job I havent seen anything to do with the ET but that wont be looked at for another 5 years or so :twisted: :roll:
