Hinckley Community Diagnostic Centre gets the go-ahead

Added at 21:20 on 27 February 2024

NHS Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Integrated Care Board (LLR ICB) are pleased to announce that outline planning permission has been granted for the development of a Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) in Hinckley.  

The CDC is a £24.6 million investment that will bring healthcare closer to home, providing CT and MRI scans, endoscopy, X-ray, and ultrasound facilities for people in Hinckley and the surrounding areas.

The approval has been granted by Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council after close and proactive working between the NHS and the local Council, working through the complexities of the project.

Approval of the CDC planning application means that agreements can be finalised with contractors so that they can begin work on site in the spring. In addition, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust are preparing to commence the recruitment of staff needed to provide services in the CDC when it opens.

The CDC forms part of a wider programme of work which aims to improve community health services in Hinckley. The ICB is currently working on plans for a new Day Case unit which would be co-located at the District Hospital site.
