A conversation with Richard Dulcamara, our NHS Partnerships specialist on the CDC space

NHS Partnerships Lead Richard Dulcamara speaks on the opportunities and challenges for CDCs

Community diagnostic centres are a great opportunity for the NHS to innovate in the way that care is provided. While these hubs are key to alleviating care backlogs right now, the health service needs to create a sustainable future for diagnostics. Otherwise we’re going to keep seeing bottlenecks, and these backlogs will build up once again. So I think this is a great opportunity for the NHS, and that’s why we’re investing in being part of that future.”

Richard explains why creating and delivering the right digital infrastructure to support one stop shops for community diagnostics is such a complex yet rewarding process. He also shares his thoughts on how the NHS can transform the way it provides care in a sustainable way.

NHS Confed report – Building the health of the nation: Priorities for a new government

In this report NHS Confederation outlines five priority areas for the next government to focus on, including recommendations for providing more care closer to home.

The report, drawing views across NHS Confed’s membership of health and care leaders across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, makes suggestions on what will be needed for a sustainable NHS.

“Our starting point is that a well-resourced NHS is vital to the running of the economy, including supporting people to work. It should be regarded as a key driver of growth,” the report said.
