Question regarding CMT in the TA. Why are we wasting our time training CMT's when there is no chance of them deploying in role unless they have relevant medical qualifications in civi life? I have been informed even TA Field hospitals are also phasing them out. (This has happened with one of our unit who was recently informed of this after dedicating most of the last 12 months gaining CMT qualification. She is now changing capbadge in order to get on a tour.) This also leads me to question what is left for female members of the TA who wish to do tours?
