Grantham’s Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) has been expanded after a £5m investment in diagnostic equipment

Facilities at Grantham’s Community Diagnostic Centre have been expanded to include state-of-the-art MRI and CT scanners.

As well as new MRI and CT scanners, the expanded facilities include changing areas for patients, additional clinical preparation areas, large scanner control rooms and a staff room.

The £5m investment in the site on Gonerby Road at Gonerby Hill Foot is the latest development in Lincolnshire’s NHS CDC programme to offer diagnostic tests to patients in the local community outside of a busy hospital setting.

The former Moy Park hatchery site has been open as a CDC since April 2022.

Further investment from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust and NHS Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board has enabled it to continue to expand.

Claire Lloyd, CDC Programme Lead, said: “Patients can be seen quicker, potentially closer to home and in a calmer environment. There is also free on-site parking, which has also been improved with re-surfacing during the building work, directly outside the entrance.”

Other exciting plans on the CDC programme during 2024 include the £38m development of two new CDCs in Lincoln Science and Innovation Park and in Skegness.
