NHS health centre plans for Hull submitted

February 1, 2024  -Plans have been submitted for a new NHS health centre in Hull. Blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound scanners, MRI, CT and ultrasound scanners will be provided at the facility.

The Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) will be located in Albion Square as part of a government scheme to reduce NHS waiting lists.

The planning application has been submitted to Hull City Council.

In December 2023, the authority agreed to put £2m towards the scheme, bringing the total cost to £18m. The plans state patients will get access to its services after being referred by their GP.

They also state ambulances will be able to drop patients off on the Bond Street side of the building.

The NHS estimates the CDC would be able to do 2,205 tests a week, around 30 per cent of all of those done locally, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

Around 300 patients a day are expected to use the centre which will have 95 full-time staff.

The CDC is set to open in 2025 if the plans are approved.
