16 Medical Regiment was formed in 1999 from the amalgamation of 19 Airmobile Field Ambulance and 23 Parachute Field Ambulance. Between them, they have been involved in every major operation since World War II.
The Regiment provides dedicated medical support to 16 Air Assault Brigade and will be called upon to support the complete spectrum of air assault operations. This will include airmobile and parachute deployments.

Two regular Air Assault Medical Surgical Groups, each of which can provide Role 2 medical support and resuscitative surgery.

In addition to the regular squadrons, an Army Reserve squadron is permanently part of the Regiment, and is based on London, Cardiff , Glasgow and Nottingham.

The Army Reserve squadron is fully integrated within the Regiment and members deploy regularly on operations and exercises in support of the Brigade.

The majority of the professionals and skills of the Army Medical Services can be found within the Regiment. Clinical specialists, such as surgeons and anesthetists have the opportunity to divide their work between the Regiment and the Second Care Agency.
