New Zealand Medical Services in Middle East and Italy

Shortage of Medical Officers

Shortage of Medical Officers

The shortage was becoming more marked during the early part of this period and in September the Division was twelve officers short. The commencement of New Zealand leave for medical officers accentuated the position. The most serious shortage was in the senior officers, and especially in those qualified for senior professional work in the hospitals and the CCS. The position was relieved later by the arrival of reinforcements from New Zealand, many of whom had served in the Pacific zone.
