The Oldham Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) welcomed Professor Sir Mike Richards, Chair, Independent Review of Diagnostic Services for NHS England, to cut the ribbon to officially mark the opening of the facility.
Professor Sir Richard said: “I was delighted to visit the Oldham Community Diagnostic Centre and see the national vision for Community Diagnostic Centres being put into practice.
“I talked to staff and patients and heard how this innovative approach developed by the Northern Care Alliance NHS FT and Alliance Medical is already starting to deliver rapid diagnosis in an accessible convenient location within the local community. I think this centre will be a superb asset for patients in Greater Manchester.”
A plaque was revealed by Professor Sir Mike Richards acknowledging this special occasion.
The Oldham CDC opened its doors late last year and is open 7 days a week, 8am to 8pm.
