Planning granted for Catterick care campus
Contractor Tilbury Douglas said formal planning approval has been granted for the new Catterick Integrated Care Campus, bringing construction of a brand-new health and care facility for the North Yorkshire a step closer.
More than seven years in development, this joint venture between the National Health Service (NHS) and Ministry of Defence (MOD) will provide a range of healthcare services for Armed Forces personnel and their families based at Catterick Garrison and residents of the wider area.
Subject to final clinical modelling, the purpose-build centre on the Garrison will feature primary care, advanced primary care, mental health services, physiotherapy, NHS dentistry for children and adults with a disability and voluntary and community healthcare support providers under one roof.
Wendy Balmain, North Yorkshire Place Director for the NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (HNYICB) said, “The NHS and MOD have been working together since 2015 to turn the vision for an integrated health and care campus for military and local civilian populations into reality. The formal planning approval is a major milestone, moving us forward with finalising our service proposals and achieving final approvals. I would like to thank all our partners for this significant collective achievement that, in time, will support the needs of the local community.”
Paul Ellenor, Regional Director of Tilbury Douglas Construction said: “My team and the project’s design partners have worked hard to develop a scheme that the local community can be proud of. Construction of the new Integrated Care Campus will benefit the local area both during construction, through new employment and training opportunities, and for the life of the building, supporting the community with high-quality health and care services. My team will now focus on finalising the design and preparing the site for construction to commence early next year.”
It is hoped the new Integrated Care Campus will be completed in 2024.
