The new clinic will deliver healthcare for US military personnel and their families in a modern, family centred environment. The building will function primarily as a GP’s surgery and dentist, but also has a number of other facilities such as a pharmacy and laboratory.

The 2 storey centre covers 2170m² and includes staff and administrative area, pharmacy and dispensing rooms, patient examination areas, clinic support rooms, office areas for senior medical staff, medical operations reception area, dental treatment rooms and the laboratory.

Don Lloyd, DIO’s Project Manager, said:


This was a real collaborative team effort to deliver a quality product. The new facility was completed and passed over to USVF within budget and on time. We hope the US personnel who will be using the centre’s services will be happy with their new facilities.

Air Vice Marshal Elaine West, DIO’s Director of Programme and Projects Delivery, said:

“I’m delighted with the success of this project. It’s a fantastic building with numerous facilities for our friends and allies in the US Visiting Forces. Further, the investment is a clear sign of confidence in DIO’s ability to deliver and we continue to work in partnership with our US colleagues.”

Richard Fry, US Air Force Civil Engineer Centre (AFCEC) UK Branch Chief, said:


The RAF Croughton Clinic is testimonial to the collaborative spirit between AFCEC UK and DIO and has taken partnership to new levels of cooperation across the board. AFCEC certainly appreciates the support we get from DIO.

VINCI Construction Ltd UK was awarded the £7.1 million contract in September 2013 and construction was completed at the end of August 2015, which was followed by fitting out the building with the necessary equipment.

The ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the opening of the medical clinic was attended by an array of military and civic dignitaries, including Air Vice Marshal West and Brigadier General Douglas A Cox, Director US Air Forces in Europe-United Kingdom.
