While this is a Medical matter, it is not confined to the RAMC alone. US Army medics are now receiving extra experience by working on local ambulances along side the crew. Good or bad idea? One factor to consider is the reaction of the Trade Union to what they might consider 'Back door' exposure/training for a strike. My main point is should Trade Unions have the right to prevent your right to better medical aid in order to deny the possible lessening of impact any future Ambulance Strike might have?
