Residents from Salford and the surrounding area can now conveniently access a range of diagnostic testing, at the Salford Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) which opens to NHS patients on 9 October.
Available testing includes scanning (MRI, CT and Ultrasound), heart and lung tests and tele-dermatology, helping to quickly and conveniently investigate a range of symptoms including suspected cancers and breathlessness. Patients are referred to the centre by their GP or other healthcare professional.
Located at West One Retail Park in Salford, the CDC offers the latest technology in diagnostic tests. The centre aims to serve approximately 20,000 NHS patients from in and around Salford each year in a convenient location away from busy hospital sites.
The Northern Care Alliance NHS Foundation Trust will be delivering these services alongside InHealth, the UK’s largest specialist provider of diagnostic solutions, who are also located in the centre.
The Salford CDC is the second CDC featured within the NCA’s footprint, joining Oldham’s CDC that opened in December 2022.
