Administrative / biographical background:
The Advisory Board for Army Medical Services was appointed in 1902 as a result of recommendations made by the War Office Committee on the Reorganization of the Army Medical and Army Nursing Services. Its purpose was to keep the Army Medical Services in touch with civilian developments, to ensure that military hospitals were up to date and to maintain standards with regard to examinations and appointments. To this end its membership consisted partly of representatives of the civil medical profession and partly of A.M.S. officers, including the Director General who acted as chairman.
Following a recommendation of the Defence Medical Services Enquiry Committee which met in 1973 the board was absorbed into a joint services body called the Armed Forces Medical Advisory Board in 1975.
