Hospitals

I'm gathering info about my partner's relation, who served as a nurse in the Middle East at these locations:

Enlisted 7th May 1915

Hospital ship Braemar Castle from Feb 1916; disembarked Basrah 3rd Aug 1916.

3 BGH Basrah;

83 CSH Nasiriyah;

40 BGH Makina;

31 BSH Baghdad;

I assume these (with the exception of the ship),were permanent establishments in base areas, commanded by a fairly senior officer?
