What medical facilities were available in the trenches during world war 1?

Very little, a company on attack might have as few as four litter bearers assigned to it and they were unskilled in medical procedures. They were to remove the wounded through communication trenches to the rear for treatment and might be capable of applying a bandage. Wounded and dead were removed more for morale purposes than for medical treatment.
