Finchley Memorial Hospital CDC wins Bronze Award for Healthcare Infrastructure Project of the Year 2024

The Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) project at Finchley Memorial Hospital, North London has won the Bronze Award for Healthcare Infrastructure of the Year, at this year’s HSJ Partnership Awards 2024.

Now in its seventh year, the prestigious awards held in London last week, received over 200 entries for this year’s submission, with 188 projects and individuals meriting inclusion on the final shortlist. The high volume and exceptional quality of applications once again mirrors the impressive levels of innovation and care continually being developed across the UK’s healthcare system.

The CDC at Finchley Memorial Hospital was one of the first CDC’s set up in England, since the programme began in 2021 to support in the backlog of elective care and to provide quicker diagnostic delivery closer to home.

The CDC is a leading example of estates driving service transformation, embedding significant change as ‘business as usual’. The ambitious £4.5m reconfiguration of an existing high-quality LIFT asset, rapidly grew from a single mobile CT scanner to a multi-modality site. The project transformed unused inpatient facilities to a successful outpatients’ diagnostics centre, bringing care closer to home for local residents.

Building utilisation increased by more than 10% during the first year of operation, at a nil increase in rent paid by the NHS.

Since its opening it has delivered over 183,000 diagnostic tests benefitting many local patients.

A huge well done to the project team involved in the delivery, including: North Central London ICS (NCL ICS), Community Health Partnerships (CHP), Royal Free London NHS Trust, RFL Property Services, gbpartnerships (gbp), North London Estate Partnerships (NLEP) and Turner & Townsend.
