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. Just read DGAMS second year report D/DGAMS/1/1 dated 06 May 05

    Quote " Introduction of a dental "Additional Qualification" for CMTs

    My Opinion
    Is this the final nail for the DSS - all posts soon to be made civilian i.e if it is a static dental centre there is no need for a person to be in uniform - thus on operations - The CMT assumes the role of DSS - Read between the lines - Did this not happen to the Education Corps - who lost its uniformed support staff !!!!

    Discuss :twisted:

    What a sad tale (tail?).

    However, you do realise that, regardless of the role of your employment group, you are not a 'teeth' arm therefore your job can of course be done by a civvy, and probably is.

    Roll on demob?

    Inf rules :twisted:
  3. Hurrah for the top brass !!!! :roll:

    Another cost cutting exercise, more pooh given to the CMT to do with no civvy qualification to show for it. The last thing I need on ops is to look down some halitosis mouth. I joined to treat the injured and ill. (Yes I know toothache is one of the worst kinds of pain but if you try and go sick with it at the weekend you just get told to nip down the med centre and get some painkillers to take and report on monday). Also I have no idea what they call those pointy things that they use except that they look painful and usually are.

    Just my opinion mind you.

    And Another Thing !!!!!!!!..................

    :oops: sorry rant over - carry on normal jogging :p
  4. Another demise just like the Medical Storeman :roll: .....and look what that did :?

    Will they ever learn 8O .........of course not :roll:
  5. Are DSS the one's who hold the sucky thing? or is that a QA job spec ?

    Going the way of the Naval MA, soon CMTs will do the majority of $hit jobs within the Corps- All nice and cheap Ad Quals.
