The new range of standardised Hygieia Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) from Algeco is helping to alleviate the huge pressure caused by the demand for diagnostic tests within the NHS.
Finding out what is wrong with patients is vital to treating them as early as possible, and more than 85% of NHS patients require some form of diagnostic test.
As a national target, 99% of patients should wait less than six weeks for diagnostic tests. However, the UK currently has less diagnostic equipment than comparable countries, and around 1.6m people in England are currently waiting for a test.
CDCs offer much-needed, cost-effective diagnostic facilities with a short build time. They provide local communities with fast, flexible access to a range of checks, scans, and tests closer to home, reduce the number of hospital visits and cut waiting times.
Available in small, medium and large, our CDCs are built using our revolutionary platform-based modular construction system, which is considerably faster, lower cost and more sustainable than traditional construction methods.
As a trusted partner to healthcare providers in the public and private sector, our experienced team is focused on addressing the need for flexible, fit-for-purpose accommodation.
With early engagement, our specialist healthcare team can support your trust at every stage, from preparing outline business cases, design and planning, to ground works, offsite manufacture and fitting out.
The new CDCs are offered with a full design, delivery, construction and finishing service, so that customers can start using their CDC from day one. Our full turnkey package also incorporates servicing, including specialised electronics needed for sensitive imaging equipment.
We also offer a flexible financing option to respond to the increasingly constrained capital budgets across the NHS. This allows trusts to increase capacity using modular construction with a highly flexible operating lease option. This funding solution has low set up costs, and is accounted for as revenue expenditure, spread over the life of the lease.
To deliver this much-needed solution to the healthcare sector, Algeco has partnered with Hygieia, a consortium of companies with extensive experience in creating efficient, modular buildings for the healthcare sector.
To ensure all aspects of the 360 turnkey solution are expertly covered, Algeco and Hygieia have teamed up with some of the leading brands in the sector, such as Tata Steel, P+HS Architecture and CAD21, amongst others. The CDCs are fully compliant with HTM / HBN requirements.
Commenting on the new range, James Withey, Managing Director at Algeco Offsite Solutions (OSS), said: “Working in partnership with Hygieia, our new CDCs provide a step change in healthcare provision by supporting the Government’s aim of delivering services directly into the community. In short, our new Community Diagnostic Centres can significantly reduce the pressure on acute hospital sites.”
High quality buildings, rapidly constructed.
