Community Diagnostic Centres

Community Diagnostic Centres (CDC's) have been designed to increase the capacity of diagnostics.

Providing community based access to diagnostic services, leaving hospital site diagnostics additional capacity to manage emergency and non-elective inpatient workload.

CDCs are expected to evolve to offer more comprehensive, coordinated diagnostic testing for patients in one site, closer to home, enabling faster and earlier diagnosis of conditions.

Each CDC will be a free standing multi-diagnostic facility that is located away from main acute hospital facilities. There is a national target to deliver 44 CDCs across England; of which 8 of these will be across the Midlands.

In Northamptonshire we are currently working on two new CDC sites. One in Kings Heath and one in Corby.

Kings Heath Community Diagnostic Centre based a Kings Heath General Practice NN5 7LN

Corby Community Diagnostic Centre based at Willowbrook Health Complex NN17 2UW

The CDCs in Northamptonshire will be run by the University Hospitals of Northamptonshire NHS Group, and the NHS Northamptonshire Integrated Care Board will oversee the work.
