A Welsh military medical team has been shortlisted for the second annual Military and Civilian Health Partnership Awards.
The Reservist Field Hospital in Cardiff has been nominated for the Education and Training award for its work delivering medical care in both military operations and within the Welsh community.
The unit, which works in partnership with the NHS community is the only military field hospital to be recognised and approved to deliver the RCN’s Clinical Leadership Programme, a BSC in healthcare via the University of Glamorgan and EDEXCEL National Vocational Qualifications.
Welsh Health Minister Edwina Hart said the awards will publicly recognise the effort and care provided to current members of the Army, Navy and RAF, veterans and their dependents.
Mrs Hart said: “These awards celebrate the partnerships within the NHS, the forces, the voluntary and private sectors that make that possible.”
Winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at Hopetoun House in Edinburgh on October 29. In total 24 teams, individuals and projects throughout the UK have made the shortlist across eight categories.
