  1. Danes to take over field hospital in Afghanistan
    08 July 2009 14:05 Ministry Of Defence (National)

    Danish medics have been taking advantage of British military medical expertise and training facilities as they prepare to take over the running of the Camp Bastion field hospital in Afghanistan.

    Danish military reservist field hospital staff have been training with 2 Medical Brigade at the Army Medical Training Services Centre in Strensall, Yorkshire, ahead of their 3-month deployment (beginning on 20 July) to take over from 202 (Midlands) Field Hospital.

    Danish Defence Secretary Soren Gade visited the training centre today to view the facilities used by British medics to prepare them for manning the field hospital where most of the British troops who require medical treatment in Afghanistan are seen. The Army Medical Services Training Centre has a mock-up of a field hospital to mirror the facilities in Afghanistan. Training includes dealing with casualties who have lost limbs and learning how to treat civilian casualties who require an Afghan interpreter.
