Plans have been revealed showing that a new state-of-the-art Community Diagnostic Centre will be located in the Broad Marsh regeneration development in Nottingham city centre, and will be run and staffed by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Department for Health and Social Care announced last year that it is funding 13 new Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs), including one in the centre of Nottingham, to help reduce the backlog of patients waiting for diagnostic tests.

CDCs are designed as a one-stop shop which support GPs by providing direct access to diagnostics services such as MRI, CT, x-ray, ultrasound, echocardiography, ECG, and lung function testing. This allows for more rapid diagnosis of conditions such as cancer, which in turn will help patients access the life-saving treatments they need more quickly.

The building will be leased from Nottingham City Council, with an initial agreement in place to proceed with the £25m NHS facility.

The Broad Marsh regeneration has already seen the development of a new Central Library, car park and bus station, a new Nottingham College city hub and has transformed streets and public spaces in the area by increasing footfall, particularly supporting businesses on Lister Gate.
