MPCT Teesside WIN Ex Medical Challenge hosted by British Army!

17th June 2019

Military Preparation College Teesside were invited to take part in Exercise Medical Challenge which is hosted every year by the British Army at Norton Army Reserve Centre, where our college is based.  The Learners were competing against 15 other teams including teams from the NHS, Cadets and many other organisations.

“The event is a medical-themed team building challenge for staff from hospitals and other health care institutions. The day is designed to give staff the opportunity to learn some of the well recognised and respected leadership skills and processes for planning used by medical units of the British Armed Forces, as well as gaining insight into life as a reservist.”

MPCT would like to thank Major Mel Bailey, Officer Commanding 201 Field Hospital for inviting our Learners to the event, which they only went and WON!
