Construction starts on Ministry of Defence and NHS health complex in Catterick Garrison

Tilbury Douglas, a UK building, infrastructure, engineering and fit-out business, has started construction on the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and NHS health complex in Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire.

The first of its kind joint project between the MOD and NHS will deliver transformative integrated health and care services to the military and civilian communities of Catterick, North Yorkshire, and the wider Richmondshire areas.

The project will enable shared estate, expertise and learning to optimise the health and care services for people across the area.

Tilbury Douglas was awarded the contract by the MOD’s Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), via the P22 framework.

Wendy Balmain, the North Yorkshire Director of NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB), said: “I am delighted that work has now started on the Catterick Integrated Care Campus which will enable us to deliver modern and fit for the future, health and care for military personnel, their families and veterans – as well as the wider Richmondshire population.

“This project will deliver a state-of-the-art purpose-built health and care facility to bring together a broad range of services collectively under one roof and provide our Catterick communities with integrated and responsive health and care.”

John Weatherby of DIO’s Major Programmes & Projects (MPP) team said: “The Catterick Integrated Care Campus, which is being delivered by MPP, represents an opportunity to consolidate, in a state-of-the-art facility, military medical and dental services which are currently dispersed across the largest military garrison in the UK.

“The new facility will allow the MOD to not only work in partnership with NHS but also reduce our estate footprint and operational running costs, while continuing to provide an exceptional service to personnel.”
