D Detachment

D Detachment 243 Field Hospital is situated adjacent to the M275 North of Portsea island and lies just south of Cosham high street and 5 mins walk from the rail station.
The personnel within the Portsmouth Detachment are recruited from a wide geographical area, from as far East as Worthing and Chichester and as far West as Poole in Dorset. We also have a number of personnel who reside as far north as Salisbury and Winchester.

Our members have deployed too many operational areas around the world from Bosnia and Kosovo, to Iraq and Afghanistan. In addition as I write this we have 2 members climbing Mt Whitney in the USA and trekking in the Grand Canyon. In short this detachment like all of the detachments listed above has a great deal of opportunity for travel. Just make sure your fit!

There is a large breadth of professions within the detachment including doctors, nurses, health care assistants, radiographers, physiotherapists, paramedics. However we don’t just recruit clinical staff, a number of positions exist for vehicle mechanics and electricians, along with chefs, Clerks and drivers. So give us a call and come down for a visit, we’d love to meet you.
