MTX secures dual contract to build CDCs in Lincoln and Skegness

Modern Methods of Construction specialist, MTX, has secured the dual contract to build Community Diagnostic Centres in Lincoln and Skegness (see artist’s impression), giving patients in Lincolnshire improved access to NHS diagnostic procedures including CT, X-ray, and ultrasound.

The two CDCs will be delivered concurrently by MTX using precisely engineered structural steel modules, factory manufactured off site while groundworks take place on site to create the new buildings’ foundations. Mechanical and electrical services will also be manufactured as modules to speed up construction process and reduce costs. Once installed on site, MTX will fit out the structural steel units to fulfil their specialised roles.

The contract for Lincoln and Skegness is one of several won by MTX to build CDCs across the UK. CDCs launched nationally in July 2021 to provide a range of patient diagnostic services, and are designed to be ‘one-stop shops’. NHS Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board and United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust successfully opened Lincolnshire’s first CDC in Grantham in April 2022, which has recently undergone a £5 m expansion to open CT and MRI facilities. To date, Lincolnshire’s CDC programme has supported the delivery of over 80,000 diagnostic tests.

Lincolnshire’s CDCs have been designed by a team with representatives from all stakeholder groups, including clinicians, patient groups, and specialist providers. The dual project to create CDCs at Lincoln and Skegness has benefited from £38 million of additional funds from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Claire Lloyd, Lincolnshire’s CDC Programme Lead, said. “For Lincolnshire, and particularly for Skegness and Lincoln, the investment in these two new CDCs is at a level that will make an enormous difference to our diagnostic testing capabilities and capacity in the county for years to come.”
