New to deployments?
Your POC will be someone in the RAF (who is not deploying) you know or are happy to contact if you need them. Your Serving partner will be responsible for arranging who this is with you. If they haven’t then you can contact us in the first instance and we can happily link you up with who you need to be speaking to.
