One of the most important department of Cloudbase, the Medical Centre (sickbay) is located on the lower of Cloudbase, adjacent to accesses to the Control Tower - and almost beneath it. This is, in fact, a fully equipped hospital, with the most sophisticated states of the art technology, run by a small team of doctors and nurses, under the supervision of Doctor Fawn. In these settings, Fawn has complete authority, and even Colonel White, when under his medical cares, is bound to follow his orders. As seen on these cutaways, the sickbay contains fully equipped operating theatres, intensive care modules, isolation ward, laboratory, etc. Doctor Fawn and his colleagues make use of the hich-tech auto-docs (3) in case of emergency surgeries. Chemical analysers (also called 'auto-analysers') can perform complex blood and toxin tests within seconds, while the Auto-Pharmacist can synthesise anything from headache pills to a cure for snake-bites in minutes. The corridor access in 1 leads directly from the Helicopter pad on the lower flight Deck to the emergency operating theatre, thus minimising waste of time when a wounded officer is brought from the ground to Cloudbase. This way, it also gives a direct access to the flight decks, in case of a crash landing.

("The Mysterons", episode 1).
Same room, next episode ("Winged Assassin"). Under the care of Fawn, Captain Scarlet
tries to remember the events leading to his 'first death'.
A camera set in the operating theatre permits Colonel White to watch on his screen
what will be happening there during the operation to save General Tiempo's life in
Doctor Fawn, waiting to receive the wounded Captain Scarlet, in "Attack on Cloudbase".
After Captains Scarlet and Blue are thought contaminated by a very deadly virus, they were isolated in this room in sickbay. "Place of Angels."
White had left the Control Room to come releasing his officers from the
Isolation Ward, still in "Place of Angels".

A part of the Medical Centre high-tech equipment, the auto-analyzer can perform blood test and analyse the different components of many other samples.
After using the auto-analyzer (seen in background), Captain Scarlet consults references books, to learn more about a drug found in a bottle of champagne. ("Flight to Atlantica")
