New diagnostic centre in Stockton-on-Tees

Thousands of patients in Stockton-on-Tees are set to benefit from quicker access to tests, checks and scans, with a new community diagnostic centre set to open later this year.

The one-stop-shop will be in the heart of the community on the site of the redeveloped Castlegate shopping centre and will be up-and-running by winter 2023, with hundreds of patients a day set to receive quicker access to treatment and lifesaving diagnostic tests.

The new centre will deliver up to 104,000 potentially lifesaving checks, scans and tests a year when fully operational. The site will provide a number of diagnostic functions, including:

  • MRI scans
  • CT scans
  • ultrasound scans
  • cardiology
  • X-rays
  • blood tests
  • respiratory checks

Diagnostic services, including cancer screening, were impacted by the pandemic. CDCs are helping to get the NHS back on track, ensuring patients get the diagnosis and treatment they need as quickly as possible. In the North East and Yorkshire, 14 CDCs are currently up-and-running and have delivered more than 257,000 tests, checks and scans. This includes MRI and CT scans, blood tests, and checks for a range of conditions such as cancer, heart and lung disease.

The total number of approved CDCs stands at 134, with 89 operational, of which 14 are based in the North East and Yorkshire.
