Community Diagnostic Centres: Phase 1 Survey
We are planning new diagnostic centres in Lincolnshire which will provide a range of elective diagnostic services, enabling easier and quicker access to tests and greater convenience to patients, and would welcome your views to help shape them.
Over the past five years, demand for diagnostic services in England has risen at a greater rate than increases in its capacity. The COVID-19 pandemic has made these challenges even worse, resulting in substantial increases to waiting lists and waiting times for some diagnostic services. In addition, our need to reduce risk of infection and social distancing means that we haven’t been able to see as many patients and for some, it takes longer for them to move through the service. In Lincolnshire, we are currently planning the implementation of Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) that will play a crucial role in easing these pressures and continue to support quicker patient diagnosis.
Your involvement in these plans is important and we would like to hear your views to identify any benefits which we can maximise, concerns we can mitigate and identify principles to shape the delivery of future CDCs.
The survey closing date for this survey is noon on Friday 18th February 2022.
