£200m medical base for barracks

17th July 2008

The Ministry of Defence has announced that a new £200m defences medical base to serve the whole of the UK will be up and running at a Staffordshire barracks by 2010.

Whittington Barracks in Lichfield is to be the location for the base, which will train medics from across the UK and eventually see 2,000 military and civilian personnel stationed there. The funds will be spent on new accommodation, offices, and training facilities at the site, which is near Birmingham’s Selly Oak Hospital, where many injured troops are taken.
