A team of tri-Service regular, reservist and international medics have spent the last few days taking part in an intense training exercise for their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

The exercise at Towthorpe Lines, Strensall, was designed to pull together over a year’s worth of build-up planning for a three-month operational tour of duty in Afghanistan.

Amongst those taking part in the exercise was Territorial Army Captain Andy Scott from 201 Field Hospital, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The exercise gave Captain Scott the chance to get to know the other members of his team before arriving in Helmand province as well as helping him to familiarise himself with the different ways of working and terminology amongst the international and tri-Service team.
