Welcome to the Royal Air Forces Association’s (RAFA) Caduceus Branch’s website for the RAF Medical Services, RAFA is a forward looking organisation and a registered charity, with over 72,000 members world-wide, and provides friendship and welfare support for serving and ex-serving RAF personnel and their dependants – over 40,000 individuals are helped each year. We hope that as you read further through the links on our website that you will join our Branch.
The RAF Medical Services have provided invaluable service for many years, saving many lives and reducing life- threatening or fatal injuries in many recent conflicts. As a member of the RAF Medical Services , you will have contributed to this effort. It was this recognition, that drove the formation of the Caduceus (RAF Medical Services) branch of the Royal Air Forces Association.
As a group of like minded individuals, we recognised that many of our own are now suffering from the effects of what we saw or dealt with.
The aim of our group is to bring ex and serving RAF Medical Services branch staff together as members of the RAF Family for various events, re-unions and to help with fundraising and to ensure that we are all looked after in times of need.
Join our branch or get involved. We would encourage you to join us and play an active part in our future. Browse our website and you will see more about some of our activities. We have over 130 members and are growing. No longer is RAFA an organisation of older airmen/ women. Our members now range from new recruits to those who were drafted for National Service and we encourage all ages to be part of the RAF Family. Veterans now come from all eras and need our support. Our members age from 73 to 20 years of age.
