Field Hospital

The Field Hospital is a monstrosity of a tented city. It is the Military equivalent of your local GP clinic, with surgical capability, all the way up to a small District General Hospital with 200 beds for the sick, lame, lazy and seriously injuried....oh and Dui-Lai with the shits....again!

Consists of your Accident and Emergency, x-ray department, pathology, operating theatres, intensive care, the wards (full of beasts called QAs!), dental department and physiotherapy (if you like pain and suffering!).

There are 3 regular field hospitals and countless TA ones!

The regular field hospitals are manned by Combat Medical Technicians who are the backbone of the unit and have the unenviable task of erecting this beast!
