NHS partners across north east London (NEL) are asking residents for their views on proposals to be able to increase the number of checks, scans and tests across our boroughs.
One proposal is to build a dedicated Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) at Barking Community Hospital (BCH) for a range of diagnostics such as CT and MRI scans, ultrasounds and blood tests.
We now want to hear from residents and stakeholders, to help us understand what is important to you when accessing these services, for example how we make the environment relaxing and what appointment times you would prefer.
Please complete our short online survey, which closes on 9 September 2022.
Ann Hepworth, our Director of Strategy and Partnerships, said: “The proposed diagnostic centre at Barking would provide more tests and scans for NEL residents and would also mean those living in Barking and Dagenham can access these services on their doorstep. We want local people to have their say, so I encourage you to please complete the survey.
“Barking Community Hospital has a bright future, and it has already played a vital role in helping us reduce waiting lists. To help us treat patients faster, we’ve added additional ultrasound facilities, as well as CT, MRI and X-ray machines.”

Register for one of our online events on 13 and 25 August and 7 September, where you will be able to hear more details and ask questions. Have your say on the proposals before Tuesday 13 September 2022.
