Hi guys, I am a third year nurse, formally a CMT looking for a bit of advice over my posting options. Please donât slag me off for changing badges Iâve heard it all, but I really would like some help. First let me say that I whish to specialise in trauma and so, to this end I will be carrying out my final placement in an A&E department (this shows my area if interest) so my posting preference will be directed at a MDHU. Now Catterick I really, really do not whish to go to so that leaves Birmingham where the post grad team are now based as well as a good military burns team, Portsmouth where a burns team / unit is beginning to be formed (Hasler was designed a few years back to be used as the military burn centre but it never happened and Hasler is still closing down), Northern Ireland where I know they experience a lot of trauma or Portsmouth who has the busiest A&E in the South. I know I canât specialise into burns until 18 mounts post graduation and I must complete my consolidation of practice. Glasgow will look at my last 3 postings; Aldershot (Keogh, Phase 2), Tidworth and RDMC (back to Phase 2) and will probably not let me stay in the South, however even if they do by the time my tour is up the burns team in Portsmouth (hopefully) will be up and running which would make the setting ideal for me to spend a further tour but I know Glasgow will not let me stay in one area for 3 tours. I am a keen and green solider having done operational tours in the past and wish to get back out into the field. Birmingham has a Critical care degree option that lasts 18 mounts so would be ideal for me as a second tour as it covers a 6mounth rotation in burns, A&E, and HDU. I think therefore that I am tied to request Birmingham then NI and possibly Aldershot, however I can also request a field unit. To this end, it would be Close Support as I am experienced in this area and hold my 432 Dvr / Cdr License. If I am to list this, it shows Glasgow my âgreen sideâ but I may get it, end up getting no consolidation of practise, and land myself stuck in a training wing! Thatâs it, Any advice or suggestions will be greatly received.
