55 Field Surgical Team RAMC

55 FST Customer Base

Omani and other civilians

The FST did spend time down at the hospital in Salalah. Some work was done in outpatients and some work in the operating theatre.

The provision of effective general anaesthesia facilitated a number of emergency Caesarean Sections and also allowed some major cases of cold surgery to take place.

The patients were drawn from

  • Local Omanis

  • Jebalis

  • Employees of Taylor Woodrow

  • Seamen from passing ships. (Jardine-Matheson you still have to honour the invoice we sent you)
