Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi , I am planning on joining as a Medical assistant, what is the training like? What is it like as a career and actually doing the job? Any info would be useful.
  2. Typing Medical Assistant in the search box (top right hand corner) produced about 255 results in 0.08 seconds!
    Have a read through these my young paduan and knowledge will be your it will!

    It's pretty similar to this, as described in the video: Medical Assistant General Service| Royal Navy

    And the factsheet: http://c69011.r11.cf3.rackcdn.com/8c058baddf52495ea883ccb45005d314-0x0.pdf

    When you say "really", one assumes you infer that the information is deliberately misleading.

    The bit it doesn't tell you is that Medical Assistants serving afloat often serve in isolation, once experienced & they become a bit odd. Often they wear socks with sandals, grow ridiculous beards and become obsessed with cleaning the sickbay floor. If a patient has the audacity to bleed all over it, they get very miffed.

    That's about it really.

  4. Oi! I resemble that remark! I'll have you know it took several gallons of ME7 to get the sickbay deck to gleam like that and I don't want your smelly oilstained stokie boys bats tramping all over it!

  7. Ninja, can you clarify what you term as a ridiculous beard?

    I am applying for MA and thought I could get the beard started early!

    It is for women.
  12. You can only be ill between 8am - 9am & 1330. Attempting to see the scablifter outside these times will be met with a **** off I'm busy.^_~
  13. Appointments can also be made at various times around the ship depending on who has the kettle on in Tea boats (various)
