Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust

Kings Heath Community Diagnostic Centre

A new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) is opening soon adjacent to the Kings Heath General Practice in Northampton. Inside there will be MRI and CT scans as well as Echocardiograms and Ultrasound equipment. This will reduce the need to visit the hospital when this diagnostic equipment is needed. This will help with earlier diagnosis of conditions such as cancer and heart disease, and help patients access the life-saving treatments they need quickly.

The aim is to get the Kings Heath Community Diagnostic Centre up and running in 2024. You can see artist impressions of the site below.

The CDC will aim to:

  • Improve population health outcomes by earlier diagnoses of significant health conditions
  • Increase diagnostic capacity in terms of workforce, facilities and equipment
  • Improve productivity and efficiency of diagnostic activity
  • Provide additional appointments for patients
  • Provide locations for diagnostic tests including CT, MRI, ultrasound and echocardigram
  • Support patients with accessible services closer to home
