Recent operations, most particularly in Afghanistan, have illustrated the requirement to understand TACEVAC within a multi-national context as both our military hospitals have moved patients using other nations aircraft and medical escort crews, and UK aeromedical aircraft and crews have moved other nations’ patients.
