Discussion in 'Professionally Qualified, RAMC and QARANC' started by nelix, Aug 10, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. what do nurses do in csmr's?

    I know about the deployments but not while back in Blighty.

    Is it like being a CMT?

    Which - if any - is the best med regt?
  2. get treated like CMTs.

    Is nelix the new Smithy?
  4. Lay of officer! Shouldn't you be at Heathrow!!

    If they get treated like CMT's at least they'll have some fun, not wipe arses, play sport, do courses, go adventure training and get put forward for bravery awards! Strikes me as a good deal.

    Lets compare-
    Pass the knife over ODP. Now wipe the floor and clean up.
    Become a decision maker not a second rate support player. What was it you wanted again surgeon? im awaiting my next order although being a SNCO.

    F*ck me he's been shot I better go over and save his life........... Well done Pte CMT good work under real pressure.
  5. 'kin hell one of them gets in the papers.......
  6. once in how many years?
    Other trades are involved in saving lives throughout their normal working day, do they bang on about it? no, 1 female CMT does her job and all of a sudden 'its what we do all the time' and those old and bold that moaned that the trade should never have allowed wimmin in are suddenly acting like it was their idea to get them in and they are the best thing since sliced bread.

    Pretty pathetic really.
  7. You are right other trades are saving lives every day as routine. That is there trade and what they are paid for. I think the crux of the recent story is the Hazard associated with the CMT’s work i.e. enemy/insurgent activity. The only hazards associated with the role of the ODP is a hung-over surgeon or a pre menstrual theatre nurse. The only other pain they suffer is missing lunch!!
    As for women being CMT’s I think it goes to show taking there physical strength limitations to one side the role is about being cool under pressure and applying your training in all circumstances. This has clearly been demonstrated by this private soldier amongst others. Do ODP’s have them(private soldiers) That’s privates and/or soldiers or is it leadership reward by qualification gained rather than demonstrated management

    So all in all not really pathetic.
    In answer to your in how many years:
    Have a look at the bravery awards from the honours list last year and you will see Lcpl Newburn (Female)CMT. Disapointing for you we know sadly factual.
    We only deal in fact. Anyway havent you got a floor to scrub! Nurse nurse theres dirt on the wall.

    Play nice, Foxy!!
  9. Sgt Pierre Naya. MM if memory serves me correctly
  10. of course we have pte soldiers, its a total load of bollox put about by 'hard done by' CMTs that ODPs get promoted on qualification, they need 3 CRs (2 from ODP trg and 1 as qualified) with a recommendation on the latest to get to board. Surely a man of your history knows how promotion boards are conducted at MCM Div!

    Obviously not going off your last post
    When was the last time an ODP scrubbed a floor? in the NHS? no, they have house keepers for that. On deployment, removing the blood and other bodily fluids belonging to someone whose life they have just saved? yes, dont want cross infection, not with another casualty coming in who needs life, limb or sight saving surgery.

    Stick to painting boxes, putting up tents, moaning about techs and talking about how your CMT class 1 is the equivelant to 4 stars at McDonalds.

    Apart from that, I hope all is well.
  11. Im not sure the class one equates to 4 stars. They take time, effort and commitmentto get which is more than the CMT qual. See Johnny no stars below !

    SITCOMs. Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a "home business".

    SINBAD. single working girls Single income, no boyfriend and desperate.

    STRESS PUPPY. A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny.

    PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE. The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to work again.

    ADMINISPHERE. The rarefied organisational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions that fall from the "adminisphere" are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve. This is often affiliated with the dreaded "administrivia" - needless paperwork and processes.

    404. Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not Found," meaning that the requested document could not be located.

    BREAKING THE SEAL. Your first pee in the pub, usually after 2 hours of drinking. After breaking the seal of your bladder, repeat visits to the toilet will be required every 10 or 15 minutes for the rest of the night.

    JOHNNY-NO-STARS. A young man of substandard intelligence, the typical adolescent who works in a burger restaurant. The 'no-stars' comes from the badges displaying stars that staff at fast-food restaurants often wear to show their level of training.

    MILLENNIUM DOMES. The contents of a Wonderbra, i.e. extremely impressive when viewed from the outside, but there's actually naught in there worth seeing.

    MONKEY BATH. A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you go:
    "Oo!Oo!Oo! Aa!Aa!Aa!".

    MYSTERY BUS. The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night while you're in the toilet after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so the pub is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in.

    MYSTERY TAXI. The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake up, whisks away the stunner you slept with, and leaves a 10-Pinter in your bed instead.

    Yes we do what the CMT's do and that doesn't mount to much! They are as bored as we are!

    We have to fight to get any clinical time and if you suggest using the clinical experience you have to teach, you get it thrown back into your face!......
