Welcome to The MERT Club
The MERT Club is an organisation for all those who served in the
Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT) from all three services from 2006 to 2014 in Afghanistan.
MERT flew multiple missions from battlefield to hospital utilising the Chinook helicopter with specialist personnel and equipment. The medical team flew to collect from point of injury, often in austere and challenging conditions and recorded 6,850 priority patients.
The MERT Club's aim is to reunite colleagues who undertook this unique role and share in the extraordinary lived experience.
The MERT Club:
• a private club where members can connect and share experiences, reunite with old
friends, celebrate achievements and help to preserve our shared history
• a place to preserve the body of clinical and operational knowledge of MERT personnel
• promotes positive wellbeing while supporting and signposting members needing help,
along with providing networking opportunities for members
• organises in-person and online social events throughout the year for members to
reconnect and share their experiences
