    How many medics are you already serving?

    Hi guys,

    I'm from non-UK country and I've got a question to you. What does my contractor mean by "how many medics are you already serving"? Medics refers to doctors (people) or to drugs (products)?

    Thank you so much!

    I have heard "medic" used as a shorthand for those engaged in providing medical care.

    I have never heard it used as a shorthand for "medicine" or "medications."

    If he's asking you, how come you don't know what he means? Are you serving both doctors and drugs?
