Community Diagnostics Centre (CDC)
Multimillion pound plans have now been approved to bring faster, more convenient diagnoses to Mansfield.
The plans will see a purpose-built ‘Community Diagnostics Centre’ built alongside the existing Mansfield Community Hospital in Stockwell Gate, Mansfield.
Once built, the Centre will house a ‘one-stop shop’ for patients to access the tests and investigations they need in a single visit, helping them to give them an answer to their concerns – including with an ‘all clear’ or diagnosis – sooner.
Getting a rapid diagnosis for conditions such as cancer will help patients access the treatments they need more quickly – something that could be genuinely life-saving, as earlier diagnosis is key to improving survival rates and quality of life for those suffering chronic diseases.
We will update this page with the latest information as the work gets underway.

If approved, the plans could see the purpose-built facility open its doors to its first patients as soon as autumn 2024 to complement the services already provided at the Trust’s King’s Mill, Newark and Mansfield Community Hospital sites.
Checks available at the new Centre will include a host of X-rays, scans and tests for a range of other conditions, including cancer and other long-term conditions – like heart and lung disease.
The Centre will be built where a derelict building that is awaiting demolition currently stands on the Mansfield Community Hospital site.
We are now offering more blood tests at our King's Mill and Mansfield Community Hospital, as part of our work to bring Nottinghamshire's first Community Diagnostics Centre to our area.
