TA Field Hospitals

#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.

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.
