To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many community diagnostic centres have been opened over the course of the current Parliament; and how many and what percentage of diagnostic centres have been opened (a) in existing health settings and (b) elsewhere in the community.
127 permanent community diagnostic centre (CDC) locations have been opened during this Parliament, of which 105, or 83%, are located on National Health Service estate. This compares to 22, or 17%, permanent CDCs located on non-NHS estate.
The Department and NHS England count CDCs delivering activity and accessing national CDC revenue funding as open. This may include activity delivered in temporary facilities while the full CDC is built.
