127 permanent community diagnostic centre (CDC) locations have been opened during this Parliament, of which 105, or 83%, are located on National Health Service estate. This compares to 22, or 17%, permanent CDCs located on non-NHS estate.

The Department and NHS England count CDCs delivering activity and accessing national CDC revenue funding as open. This may include activity delivered in temporary facilities while the full CDC is built.
