QA Domination of the AMS - Fact or Fiction

#1
In maintaining the ethos of ARRSE, has anybody noticed the insidious increase in QARANCs in the upper echelons of the AMS - discounting the over abundance of SOIs in HQ APHCS, we now have a couple of QA ADs and a couple of QA RCDs. There is now a "rumour" that each of the Regional APHCS HQs are to be established with an additional QA SO1 and a couple of posts retitled COS and DCOS. So what does this all mean - a push by the QAs to beat the MSOs in getting a non-clinician DG? The retitled COS & DCOS posts though seems to be a blatant attempt to get some street-creed in their OJAR profile!

'The retitled COS & DCOS posts b]'

Putting the OJAR comment to one side and with due regard to the high calibre of many QARANC officers, the jobs mentioned would seem entirely appropriate for both MSOs and QARANC- at OF3 or OF4 - and I assume it is the latter. So why are they not 'Med Any' jobs, or am I missing something here?

Ah, but you are forgeting the FOE that got them there, after a all a QARANC is a VIP and HTP, and one which WSK because of their MS and of course some are FIT. Others are BAs, so the lads have told me. MU and MOSJ need MOOs, so why not put a NQ QURANC in place with all their MCN quals?

I was thinking more of the stockings than the Cape

God yes, that grey uniform with redcape and stockings how bloody perfect.

and not only that but all the ones I've ever met and I've met a few having spent a shit load of time in hospital and at hedley Court were really nice people. So if they want to take over the world they get my vote and as for the domination well all i have to say on that is.

Spank me harder Nursey!

Karabiner for DGAMS!!!

Karabiner for Prime Minister......................... :)

I can't believe all this talk of QA's taking over the world and nobody mentioned the fact that DCOS and COS at HQ 2 Med Bde are both QA Lt Cols.....

At least it was when I last went up there

Thought the MSO picked up on the command board and went out to Germany? and Karabiner I thought this whole thread had a bit of tongue and cheek to it, so lighten up. I have seen plenty of QA's filling key SO3 and SO2 posts (non clinical) within our core giving them the experience for bigger and better things. Its pure jealousy as no one argues with a nurse!! I have seen SMOs taken down a peg or two by experienced QA's be they commissioned or SNCO.

yeah 3 x 1 stars and they all have less Op Medals than our JNCO's still at least they had plenty of staff experience prior to Lt Col.... Oh wait.......
