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:

    How about the following:

    a. Disband all Regular Fd Hosps. Retain the three CSMR's

    b. Make all TA Fd Hosps R5 with 30+ cadre Regulars, use as RHQs for tours.

    c. Close the remaining MDHUs and use BUPA for serving soldiers. This means you dont need regular nurses (ODPs) and techs(Lab and Xray).

    d. End CMT/ HCA Trg and make them RLC/Pioneer Medical Orderlies (like a poor man's RMA)- to set up Fd Hosps.

    e. Make all Nurses and other Techs TA. Place on a database and cherry pick as the Operation requires. TA nurses and techs sign up to do tours and make their commissions honoury, if they have one. Stop TA CMT Trg.

    f. The only Regular RAMC would be RMOs with regular Battalions, reform the Medical Staff Corps for them.

    Must be some money saving in there! Hope no one from AMD reads this!

    The ultimate revenge- make all QA RGNs and Techs and ODP's TA!
  9. Yeah HCA's are great, if ya can find a uniform big enough... :p
  10. HEE HEE!!
  11. What about making all trades start as privates????
  12. To add fuel to your theory, all med covers ie ranges and battlecamps they could just use 999.

    Now that is an interesting thought !
  13. what about............

    1. Disband CMTs and make everyone a HCA with 3 trades??

    HCA (Field), HCA (Primary Care), HCA (Secondary Care)

    2. As HCAs Cannot be commissioned into QARANC make the trade RAMC?? thereby giving them a chance of commissioning.

    Have a small Carde of CMTs which do Ambi and Emergency work

    MMT (Military Medical Technicians)
  14. And put up tents and do all the arsse jobs... :oops:
  15. I had a radical thought after the Festival of Remembrance tonight -
    Why doesn't someone teach the QAs how to march in step?
