Diagnostic checks rolled out to 160 sites under CDC programme

The latest statistics show that patients have benefited from over 7 million tests, checks and scans delivered through CDC funding across England.

Health and Social Care Secretary Victoria Atkins has announced that vital tests, checks and scans are now being delivered at 160 sites across England as part of the CDC programme. Based in shopping centres and university campuses - as well as NHS hospitals - CDCs play a vital role in identifying and treating illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.

The government pledged to roll out additional diagnostic tests and scans from a network of 160 sites across the country by March 2025 as part of the CDC programme. Almost a year ahead of the original target date, the CDC programme is now delivering activity on 160 sites.

The rollout is helping to reduce pressure on hospitals and allow for a speedier diagnosis, so patients receive potentially life-saving care sooner.

Health and Social Care Secretary Victoria Atkins said: "We know early diagnosis and treatment are vital, and by rolling out additional tests, checks and scans at 160 sites, we’re improving health outcomes for millions of NHS patients across England.

"We’re delivering record diagnostic tests, record levels of investment and embracing the latest technology across the NHS to deliver care to people when and where they need it. We remain determined to deliver our long-term plans to cut waiting lists, reduce pressures and make the NHS faster, simpler and fairer for patients."
