Exercise Medical Challenge is taking place at the 1800-hectare Longmoor army training area on the Surrey and Hampshire border between Bordon, Liphook, Farnham and Guildford on July 24. Operated by the 256 (City of London) Field Hospital, Exercise Medical Challenge is designed for NHS staff to enhance their leadership and management skills as well as to develop team building and communication capabilities during a number of challenging situations.

The Army Medical Service is a modern, inclusive, operationally proven organisation that is aligned totally with the National Health Service. 256 Field Hospital is an Army Reserve unit based in London and is the city’s only Army Medical Services Hospital.

“This is a unique opportunity not only to develop staff but to recognise their potential and encourage their continuing development. I would like to enter a team of 10 from Surrey Heartlands,” said Richard Wooley, Step into Health Project Manager based at St Peter’s Hospital.

Certificates will be awarded at the end of the day. If you are interested in taking part please contact Richard via email at richard.wooley@nhs.net .
