The Royal Army Medical Corps has a wondrous and proud history that serves us all to this day. It is only through understanding what was, that we can be sure of where we are going. We continue to play our part today in creating the history of the future. The technology may be more advanced but our soldiers achieve now what they achieved then- saving lives on the battlefield.

The RAMC Association
The RAMC Association was formed in January 1925. It became a registered charity in April 1993. In Jan 2007 it amalgamated with the five other Corps Funds to form a new Charity, The RAMC Charity, which is a Company limited by guarantee. The Charity is run by a Board of Trustees and the Association is a sub committee of the Charity represented by their National Chairman who is a Trustee of the Board. At a national level the day to day running of the Association is done by its Management Committee of Regional Representatives and a dedicated Secretary. Its finance is allocated annually by the RAMC Charity.
Locally, the Association has 38 branches, each of which run their own programmes of functions and events and elect their own committee.
