To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will publish the sites of community diagnostic centres that are (a) open and (b) planned as of 5 July 2022.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
9 August 2022
The attached table shows the operational community diagnostic centres (CDCs) as of 5 July 2022 and the overall activity levels at each site where available, including tests and checks, as of 19 June. The table also shows the activity levels of early adopter sites which are no longer operational.
NHS England is currently reviewing the definitions of CDC sites and how each type of site reports activity. In the first year, 'hub’ and ‘spoke’ sites jointly reported activity data. Therefore, the attached data may not include activity where sites formerly reported through this joint model and have since separated into a distinct ‘hub’ or ‘spoke’ site. The reporting of activity data for separate spoke sites will commence from September 2022.
We have committed £2.3 billion for the launch of up to 160 CDCs by March 2025. While future CDC locations have not yet been confirmed, regions are working with integrated care systems, diagnostic networks and primary care services to determine the location and configuration of services, based on the needs of the local population. Information on the number of CDCs operated in part or in full by the private sector or offering services which have been outsourced to the private sector is not held centrally.
