Having driven down a bit of the A1 this morning, another couple of former RAF places the brown jobs have now got:

RAF Catterick
RAF Disforth

Local rumour has it RAF Leeming could eventually go brown as well.

Mind you, yet another local rumour is that the current hospital in Northallerton (the Friarage) is in danger of being divested by its bigger partner the James Cook in Middlesbrough, leaving an empty mid sized hospital going begging. Now, keeping the Hospital at Birmingham going for the aeromeds and VSI's, it could be that the MOD shut down all the various MDHU's and transfer all to the Friarage - lo and behold a military hospital with no start up costs. With Catterick Garrison on its doorstep, being just off the A1 and on the main East Coast rail line, not too bad a location. Perhaps its local MP being William Hague may have something to do with the rumour (there again pigs might fly).
