Community Diagnostic Centres – Delivering the Challenge

In this live Q&A session teams from Wood Green Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) and the Poole outpatient assessment clinic share learnings and experiences from setting up their centres. The team used examples from their work to offer advice, share expertise and unpack some of the most demanding challenges faced – from finding suitable locations, feasibility studies, design and CQC, to sustainability of models, efficiency of operations, managing multiple stakeholders and timescales.

MMC & Traditional

The UK Government has been increasingly encouraging and incentivising the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) for building projects across the public sector. But how do you choose which construction method to use for your healthcare building project? What are the advantages and disadvantages to MMC and traditional healthcare construction? And how does it affect the wider strategy for your Trust? What further support needs to come from the MMC industry to help the NHS?

These are just some of the questions that were addressed in our round-the-table discussion this June hosted by Jaime Bishop, healthcare architect and co-chair of Architects for Health, Eric Fehily, Director of Estates & Facilities at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, Chris Hodgson, Director of Estates & Facilities at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, and Andrew Rolf, specialist in healthcare, passive design, MMC and the reuse of existing buildings.

Community Diagnostics on Your High Street

The first of our Health on the High Street™ webinars, in this session we are joined by Ashleigh Boreham, deputy director of design and transformation at Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, and Jaime Bishop, founder of Fleet Architects, to discuss the setting up of the  Community Diagnostic Centre in Poole. Established in Beale’s department store, the CDC has been described as a first of its kind.

The CDC at Poole is an example of healthcare in the community in practice. In the recording above you can see in detail the plans and supporting documents from University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust, which helped to form the business case for the diagnostic centre.
