Community Diagnostic Centres

Give your Community Diagnostic Centres the treatment they deserve. We help the NHS manage and staff Community Diagnostic Hubs & Centres with our highly trained radiographers.

Supporting Community Diagnostic Hubs

Community Diagnostic Centres (CDC) were established as part of the NHS improvement scheme. NHS England aims to transform the current care delivery models and deliver diagnostic services closer to the patient’s home.

New Community Diagnostic Centres will improve diagnostic capacity by increasing the availability of in-house diagnostic tests. In turn, we aim to reduce the pressure on hospitals to deliver diagnostic testing services and provide an improved patient experience.

The independent review of diagnostic health services, completed by Professor Sir Mike Richards in 2020, recommended significant reform and investment in critical diagnostic services. The key areas for improvement within health services include equipment and facilities, workforce, digitisation and connectivity, and other enablers to deliver the required change.

Our management and staffing of Community Diagnostic Centres is designed to help NHS Trusts deliver on this required change across the UK.

We only work with the best, highly-trained radiographers to provide direct access to diagnostic tests and imaging. Our team work across multiple sites to fulfill existing waiting lists and extend the open hours of a  department to manage backlogs. We provide:
