    Interim Community Diagnostic Hub solutions

    With rising backlogs in diagnostic imaging waiting times, Philips supports the NHS through providing interim Community Diagnostic Centres or Hubs (CDC/H) in modular and relocatable format. 


    CDC/H solutions are adaptable and can include common areas along with bolt-on imaging rooms including Magnetic Resonance (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT).  Each room can be removed and replaced with changing demand.


    Philips manages CDC/H projects from initial design to final completion, including full construction management services

    Types of Community Diagnostic Centres (CDC)

    Whilst there are a number of proposed models, health inequalities and deprivation are not uniform across the United Kingdom. Community Diagnostic Centres and hubs should not be viewed as “one size fits all” solutions and to this end they are likely to be bespoke to meet the needs of the local population.


    There are three proposed models which include a range of core services.  The Independent sector support realisation through either partnering with acute providers across all three models or operating their own centres

    In addition to core services, facilities have scope to include further services
