An extra 15 minutes should not cause any significant balance issues, nor should it affect the value of the Thyferran Module.
Medical Centers serve very little purpose in Restoration - the passive wound healing is so low that it is irrelevant, and any increases to the Heal Wound skill (if there are any) are also irrelevant since 2-3 uses of the skill are usually enough to fully heal any wounds.
This results in most Doctors choosing to setup everywhere else (usually around Starports). This change will incentivise them to instead buff/heal at Medical Centers, which is where players (especially new ones) should logically expect to find them anyway.
When Doctors buff in a Medical Center (NPC or Player City), the duration of the buff should be increased by 15 minutes.
I believe this change would also be in line with how Medical Centers interact with Medic Buffs in the NGE, so that is another precedent in favour of it.
