Paramedic already in RAF Reserves transfer possible to Navy?

#1
Greetings

Some boring background before my question...

I originally trained as an infantryman with the SADF then went to work in the cruise-line industry for a number of years before settling in the UK.

I am a civilian paramedic doing my bit in the RAF reserves as a paramedic.

Does anyone here have first hand knowledge of how possible/practical a transfer to the Navy Reserves is in my line of work please?

Thank you for a great site.

I mate and welcome from a fellow paramedic.

i'm not 100% sure but i don't think the RNR has a medical branch any longer. Its best if people like supermario and ninjastoker advise you on this.

They do, but all of the non-nursies have gone to play with the dabbers.. no more medics, only SPO Team Medics.

Great bunch of guys though!

The RN doesn't have paramedics I'm afraid - I know paramedics in the TA and the RAF (as well as RAuxAF) so it sounds like you're already in the right place.

Re: Paramedic already in RAF Reserves transfer possible to N

Hi,


RNR Medical staff/Jobs

MedicalRank on entry will be dependent on qualifications and experience, as assessed by the Medical Director-General (Royal Navy).

Experience/requirements: You will need to have a medical background, as outlined below.

The Royal Navy Reserves Medical Branch recruits qualified medical practitioners – especially surgeons and anaesthetists – and adultqualified first-level nurses registered on Parts 1 (RN1/RNA) of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Register who make up Queen Alexandra’s Royal Naval Nursing Service (Reserves) (QARNNS(R)).

QARNNS(R) has opportunities for a small number of Nursing Officers as well as a larger cadre of Naval Nurse Ratings, including those with experience or specialist qualifications in intensive care, accident and emergency, orthopaedics and surgery. There will be a few openings for Medical Technicians.

As part of the Medical Branch, you will be trained to man ships that receive casualties in a crisis or war situation, as well as forming surgical support teams. You will have a crucial role in providing medical care in demanding situations.

That said I know that the RNR have taken away alot of the post for medical specialists. The best thing to do is contact your local unit and see what they can offer you.

Hope this helps

Supermario

Thank you all, for your advice and the posts
So what's wrong with the RAuxAF?
If he's going to lift scabs by day, maybe he wants a better rig to trap in by night? Just guessing.
