TLA for Station Medical Officer - an RAF appointment, and equivalent of the Army's MO.

Also a separate appointment in the Army for Senior Medical Officer. With the advent of Clinical Governance, the SMO is the Head Honcho in charge of a Garrison or Station Medical Centre. Allegedly the SMO is the senior practitioner in charge of all the up and coming, thrusting, young (baby) MOs and is responsible with preventing them doing a Shipman on the bluffing cnuts in the Battalion with laminated Biff Chits.
