Shortage of Medical Officers

Shortage of Medical Officers

One of the main problems for the ADMS 2 NZ Division was the shortage of medical officers. At one period the Division was eleven medical officers under strength, including the CCS which was three officers short. As a result there was a constant changing of officers from one medical unit to another. Very often the officer staff of the closed MDS consisted only of the officer commanding, his second-in-command, the quartermaster, and dental officer. Regimental unit commanders were most co-operative in releasing where possible their RMO to ADSs and MDSs during busy periods.
