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."
Interested in Language
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!
If he's asking you, how come you don't know what he means? Are you serving both doctors and drugs?
