Naval Service Redundancies: Tranche 3

Still some uncertain times ahead for medics:
Naval Families Federation website said:
Message from Chief of Naval Personnel & Training and Second Sea Lord
15 January 2013

Introduction: As announced by the Ministry of Defence (2013DIB/03 dated 15 Jan 13 – Armed Forces Redundancy Programme – Announcement of Tranche 3) [available to Serving Personnel on the Defence Intranet] the Naval Service will not be seeking further redundancies in Tranche 3, but may need to consider a very small number of redundancies at a later date.

Detail: As highlighted during the second tranche of redundancy some 12 months ago, the Naval Service is committed to limiting the number of any further redundancies. At that stage it was anticipated that any further redundancies would be limited to senior officers (OF5s and OF6s) and senior medical staff. I have reviewed the future requirement and am pleased to announce that non-medical senior officers (OF5s (Captains / Colonels) and OF6s (Commodores / Brigadiers)) will now be excluded from consideration in any future redundancy rounds. Unfortunately, we will still have to consider a very small number of senior medical staff* (OF3s (Lieutenant Commanders / Majors) and above) for redundancy in Tranche 4, although the details are as yet unclear.

The exact numbers and specialisations will be heavily influenced by the outcomes of the study into the shape and size of the Defence Medical Services (DMS20). This study has only recently reported and whilst the implications are still being analysed it is clear that all three Services will need to adjust their medical staff numbers using all manning levers available, potentially including redundancy. Any requirement for redundancies from the Royal Naval Medical Service will be announced later in 2013.

I am delighted that the announcement by the Secretary of State for Defence ends the Naval Service Redundancy Programme for over 99% of the Naval Service. More importantly it ends, for most, the uncertainty, often identified as the hardest feature of any phased redundancy programme. Nevertheless, for those in the Medical Services I recognise the remaining uncertainty and undertake to keep you informed as the outcome of DMS20 and the implication for the Naval Service become clear. I will write again when I know more.

Personnel should see the Defence Internal Brief 2013/DIN/03 on the Defence Intranet for further details. This DIB focuses on the forthcoming Army redundancies in 2013.

This is the unbeleivable part - they are actually going to get rid of Nursing officers and Surgeons? I thought that the RN could never make its numbers in the Medical Branch!

It's not all bad news:

...pleased to announce that non-medical senior officers (OF5s (Captains / Colonels) and OF6s (Commodores / Brigadiers)) will now be excluded from consideration in any future redundancy rounds.

Every cloud has a silver lining, eh?

Ninja, You have given me great advice in the past, can we work out who you are from your lack of concern from potential reduncacies? maybe Surgeon Vice Admiral?

We don't have a serving Surgeon VAdm any more - and MDG(N) has been downgraded from RAdm to Cdre. Progress, eh?

Just of interest (never having seen one) where does a Commodore doc wear the red stripe? Underneath the big goldy one I would assume.
