RAMC Driver

#1
Hello all. I have been asked to attend an interview with a local RAMC Unit, and hope to become a driver. Does anyone know whether RAMC drivers work in a purely transport role, or do also assist in the Nurses/CMTs in a medial capicity?

Ex. RAF Mountain Rescue Troop, now :rmp: in my forties and bored with civi life!

CMT's also drive, but Med Regts also have driver Rad Ops. CMT's generally drive the BFA's as Dvr Rad Ops man the FFRs.

or paint boxes
I WISH I could paint a box.

Seriously though, a good med regt will put you on your team medic course. A good med regt will also ensure you know about the kit so you can assist the CMT's as well.

Just stay away from Preston. It's probably the worst Sqn in the RAMC there.

And count all the meds in the boxes...put up tents...drive round in circles...put up more tents....and generally get fkd around on daily basis for no good reason by tent putter upperers who have gained power via kremlin..(3 adfa)
you forgot to mention the thing about putting tents up(and down, and up,and down,and up, and down, then repeat several times)

Ah, TAitetus "we aren't exercising the dvr ops correctly (no HQ or other unit to work to), so we will get them doing other jobs."

Or the more developed version where RSignals have reverted to motorbikes and/or RLC Postal & Courier service to deliver & collect emails. Again this is Fd Hosp and Med Bde HQ's to/from normal Bde unit.

I suppose it's a bit like scaley units where the AGC and drivers use far more IT than the IT specialists.

Not in our unit :x Its the Permanent Staffs job to deploy several days in advance so the TA can come in on a Friday night, go home on a Sunday leaving the Permanent Staff to take it all down, reurn to location, put it all up again so it can be cleaned & checked before taking it all down again :x

Oh, then spend several days working late to catch up on all the work that they should have been doing :x

Sounds a bit like the way that we, the techs and nurses were treated in the early days of 33 Fd Hosp, the CMTs would all shoot off to Browndown, set up the tentage then we wouldgo up and put our kit in.
This soon changed though and we'd all get pished off putting everything up and setting up the wards and depts to then watch the reinforcements arrive by coach, exercise for a day and then leave again.
