Northwich’s Victoria Infirmary (VIN) Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) has enabled more patients to be seen for quick frontline diagnostic imaging, reducing waiting times and freeing up pressure on other acute hospital scanners.
The modular CT building has been integrated onto the existing Victoria Infirmary listed building by Canon Medical Systems UK. The turnkey project involved creating the additional CT facility by demolishing an old casualty building, knocking through and adding an integrated modular building containing an AI-assisted Aquilion Prime SP CT scanner.
Karen Bowman, General Manager, Victoria Infirmary, Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: "Two thousand outpatient, follow-up or high-risk query CT scans have been enabled in 9 months due to the creation of the CDC at VIN. This means more people have been seen sooner than would have been previously possible. The dedicated CDC also means that pressure on our acute hospital scanners at Leighton Hospital has been relieved. That’s thousands of CT appointments removed from our front-line acute scanners giving them the dedicated focus they need for emergency or advanced imaging such as cardiac and CT colonoscopy.”
“The CDC model has proven itself and enabled us to start conversations about enhancing other care pathways via a ‘one-stop-shop' approach.”
