Community Diagnostic Centres

The government has today announced 40 new Community Diagnostic Centres across England, providing a one-stop-shop for patients to boost early diagnoses and tackle the NHS backlog.

  • Providing testing and earlier diagnosis will be key to reducing waiting lists and saving lives, as we focus on tackling the backlog and addressing health disparities across the country. 
  • That is why we are establishing 40 new Community Diagnostic Centres – providing a full range of tests to patients to catch illnesses at the earliest signs – increasing NHS capacity and saving lives as more patients seek treatment for non-Covid related health problems. 
  • These centres will help to increase the NHS’s capacity and bust the backlogs – levelling up health outcomes as we build back better.
