34 Field Hospital
34 Field Hospital was declared operational on 1 October 1996 and is based in Strensall in North Yorkshire. Since its formation the unit has served with pride and professionalism on deployed operations to Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone Iraq and Afghanistan.
Our mission is to deliver deployed hospital care in order to maximize operational capability.
The hospital is one of three regular Close Support Hospitals (CSH) and is routinely manned by a cadre staff and is augmented, on deployment, by clinical staff from the Joint Medical Command, other areas of defence.
On enduring operations such as Operation ENTIRETY in Afghanistan, we are augmented in critical areas by civil healthcare Contractors on Deployed Operations (CONDO).
