Visit to Tactical Medical Wing RAF Brize Norton
Much publicity was rightly given to the sad repatriation of Service personnel who had lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan; however, nowhere near as much publicity was given to the incredible and often heroic efforts of Tactical Medical Wing personnel to evacuate casualties by helicopter from the battlefields to the Field Hospitals for stabilization prior to their urgent aeromedical recovery to major trauma centres in the UK.
The Branch is most fortunate to have been offered the opportunity to visit the RAF Tactical Medical Wing (TMW) at RAF Brize Norton on:
27 September 2017 commencing at 13:00 and finishing circa 16:30
Programme The Programme will embrace all aspects of RAF Aeromedical Evacuation, including the history, techniques and equipment used plus examples of live operational aeromedical evacuations. Subject to operational circumstances, we hope to visit an aircraft configured for aeromedical evacuation.
Car Parking Car parking will be in the lay-by shown on the map below and you should go straight to the lay-by and not the Main Visitor Reception at RAF Brize Norton. Ideally arrange to arrive by 12:45. We will need advanced notification of car details, drivers and passengers so that we can submit a visitor nominal roll in advance of the visit. We encourage the use of car-sharing. Tactical Aeromedical Wing will provide any on-base transport that may be required.
Cost There is no charge for the visit itself but we may suggest a small fee to cover refreshments and also make a donation to a suitable charity.
Security As always, a suitable photo ID (Driving Licence or Passport) MUST be carried at all times and be available on request.
