Stonehouse Barracks Medical Centre opens for business

Up to 700 Service personnel at Stonehouse Barracks, in our Regional Prime South West contract, are set to benefit from a major refurbishment of the site’s Medical Centre thanks to the recent completion of a project by Amey and the Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Over the three months of the programme, teams installed new cupboards, work surfaces, floors and sinks and gave the entire interior a new coat of paint. In order to comply with modern medical infection control standards, the old carpets and curtains were also removed.

Surgeon Lieutenant Commander Richard Pinney, Principle Medical Officer for 30 IX Commando RM said;  “We’ve now got a modern, fit for purpose medical facility that reflects and supports the forward looking nature of the Royal Marines and other Units that work within 3 Commando Brigade and COMLTG, here in Stonehouse. Medical care is crucial and integral to maintaining the effectiveness of a force and maximising the time available to Command”.

The project was officially handed over to Brigadier Beardmore, Commandant of HQ Defence Primary Health Care and Royal Marines, Colonel Tony De Reya, Deputy Commander 3 Commando Brigade RM in October.

Surgeon Lt Cdr Pinney continues; “Despite losing my place of work for the last three months, I am relieved and very proud to say, that Stonehouse Medical Centre is now again fully open for business.”
