Read the paper and learn how to generate access to care. 

Hospitals worldwide are wrestling with the issue of access to care. Decentralization of health systems is at the heart of a £2.3 billion initiative in England seeking to increase the amount of diagnostic capacity and activity across the country. The idea is to open 165 Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) within a few years, which will be key aspects of reform efforts to improve efficiency, quality, and patient outcomes.  

CDCs will be...

  • A connected yet decentralized network of healthcare centres 
  • Potentially able to mitigate growing backlogs and long patient wait times
  • Unique and influenced by different integrated care systems and local patient pathway requirements
  • Able to ensure better population health outcomes, improve the patient experience, reduce health inequalities
  • Making care more available, affordable and accepted by the population being served
