Community Diagnostic Centres

We have been working hard to develop our first community diagnostic centre (CDC) in the county.

To help design the new centre, we carried out a public survey which received nearly 1,300 responses. Thanks to everyone who shared their views and feedback, we’re really pleased to say it’s on track to be completed by the end of this year.

This is new facility which will be based at Hollinswood House in Stafford Park 1, Telford, offering a variety of different diagnostic services such as CT scans, non-obstetric ultrasound scans, X-Rays, ECGs, and blood testing.

The centre is being funded by £4 million of capital funding and is backed up by recurrent revenue funding of more than £2.1 million each year to recruit the required staff.

It will see elective diagnostic tests delivered away from acute hospital sites and separately from urgent diagnostic scans, reducing waiting times for non-urgent tests and the risk of cancellation, whilst also improving patient experience and outcomes.
