NHS staff go on manoeuvres with Army Reserves

Kath Higgins, head of nursing and Army Reserves major, with hospital colleagues.

HOSPITAL staff got a taste of military life on a team building and leadership day at Altcar Training Camp, Formby.

18 people took part with representation from the wards, radiology, A&E, dermatology, sterile services, the walk in centres, administration, theatres and gynaecology.

The day was a mixture of interactive classroom sessions on team building and conflict resolution. Presentations and command tasks were delivered by the commanding officer, majors, warrant officers and other personnel from 3 Medical Regiment.

It also included outdoor command tasks with the grand finale being indoor ranges where staff demonstrated their newly acquired skills handling SA80 rifles, the military services? current issued weapon.

The training day was organised by Kath Higgins, Head of Nursing for Planned Care, who is also a major with 207 Field Hospital at Chorley based 3 Medical Regiment. Both are units within the Army Medical Services employing regular and reserve personnel.

She said:- "It was 1 of the wettest and windiest days of the year but this did nothing to quash people?s enthusiasm. We had brilliant feedback and this is sure to be the 1st of many such exercises."
