Medway and Swale Health and Care Partnership Community Diagnostics Centre Briefing Report pdf icon PDF 224 KB

This Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) briefing paper sets out plans to develop community diagnostic centres in Medway and Swale.  The plans are to establish a hub, based at Sheppey Community Hospital (SCH) and a spoke, based at Rochester Healthy Living Centre (RHLC). The provision of imaging, physiological measurement and pathology tests and scans at these sites, over the next three years will deliver significant additional diagnostic capacity in the system, which will help to support COVID 19 recovery plans as well as future growth in demand.  Increased diagnostic provision in the community will utilise existing NHS estates and improve access particularly for communities facing the highest level of health inequalities.
