Thediagnosis and treatment of a range of conditions including cancer and heart disease, is set to get quicker, thanks to a new centre in Denton.
We are super excited to be working in partnership with Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust and Stockport NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a new Community Diagnostic Centre in Denton, South East Manchester.
Our excellent working relationship with NHS England goes from strength to strength as we prepare to welcome thousands of patients to this new Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) every year. The CDC will proudly offer a wide range of diagnostic tests in one central place that best serves the wider community, away from a busy hospital site. Our services will be made available to the populations across Stockport, Tameside, Glossop and the High Peak.
The South East Manchester CDC will be the second of its kind in Greater Manchester to be located in a retail location, situated at Crown Point in Denton. It will offer high tech scanning, heart tests and other diagnostic services, helping to detect a range of conditions quicker, ensuring patients can then be treated faster.
Karen James OBE, Chief Executive for both Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust said: “It’s great to see building work starting on our new Community Diagnostic Centre which will ensure more checks, tests and scans are available sooner for people in both Tameside and Stockport. This will be a fantastic new resource for local people, helping them to get the diagnosis and care they need as soon as possible.”
Geoff Searle, InHealth Chief Executive, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to be working in partnership with our NHS partners in the North West to create this new centre, which signifies another step forward in providing additional capacity, improving health outcomes and increasing the range, scale and accessibility of services for the local population of Greater Manchester. InHealth has been working in partnership with the NHS for more than 30 years, with more than 15 existing Community Diagnostic Centres in England, so we’re delighted to be expanding this model across the country.”
