Increasing access to diagnostic appointments

Reducing health inequalities and improving health outcomes

Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) aim to reduce pressure on hospitals. They allow patients to access planned diagnostic care nearer to home without the need to attend acute hospital sites.

Creating additional testing capacity within the community, CDCs enable the NHS to diagnose patients earlier, reduce health inequalities, and improve health outcomes. Our mobile CDC can support with:

  • Cardiology
  • Respiratory
  • Endoscopy
  • Ophthalmology
  • Imaging
  • Phlebotomy

Client Testimonial

Our priority is to address the waiting lists that have grown during the pandemic and to use the additional capacity at the CDCs to ensure patients can get the investigations they require in a timely manner and meet growing demand for diagnostic tests in the future.

Innovative solutions that solve diagnostic capacity challenges

A CDC to support growing endoscopy capacity demands

Kidderminster Hospital was one of the first early adopter sites to roll out a CDC. An additional 3,000 patients were seen in the first 3 months.

The installation of the mobile endoscopy unit accelerated the trust’s diagnostic activity to aid in the swift recovery of services from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

EMS Healthcare’s Trilogy+ mobile endoscopy unit, in conjunction with a separate new CT scanner, meant around 8,000 more patients were able to get the tests they need quicker and more safely over a 6-month period. 

The contract was extended for an additional 12 months to further support NHS Worcestershire Acute Hospitals.
