TA Field Hospitals

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by Rob T, Oct 12, 2010.

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. I am a physiotherapist and looking to join the TA in the near future. I have been researching this and notice that field hospitals have (Volunteers) as a postfix. Is this an indicator that they are TA-run or do they take volunteers as well? I would be interested in working as a physio as a volunteer at the local field hospital in the first instance then look to join after. Any clarification would be appreciated.
  2. The (Volunteers) or (V) is an indicator that the unit is TA. A Volunteer is a TA soldier, not just somebody who helps out. That said, there are some TA units that don't sport the (Volunteers) or (V) title, just to make it more confusing.
  3. I suspected as much, thanks for the clarification.
