Units with fixed saves could simply get a bonus to the fixed save.
(Termies always save on a 5+ instead of just a 6+ for example.)

NO! Multiple Medics should have no additional effect. This makes for a
system open to far too much abuse, even if you limit the increased modifier.

Heh. You've never played against the kind of people I have then. I had a
guy who had a Medic for EVERY Marine company he bought and because of the
Allies rules, bought a Warlord Battlegroup too boot. He then created a
wall of Marines, all with a 5+ fixed save. They were bloody hard to shift,
believe me. If the save can be modified, then the Medics are useful, but
not overly effective, as they should be. There should be some hits that
even a Medic with high tech devices can't save.
