A new medical centre will open in 2025 in Stoke-on-Trent in the location of the former Sainsbury’s store in Hanley. 

The £42.6m project will create a Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) where patients can receive tests, scans, and diagnostic services outside of hospitals. 

The University Hospitals of North Midlands (UHNM) will run the facility. 160 diagnostic clinics are to open in other locations across England. These centres are being opened to make tests and scans more accessible to all and to reduce wait times. 

Faster diagnostics will ensure that conditions can be treated sooner. Specifically, patients will be able to receive ultrasound, CT, and MRI scans. 

It is hoped that the new Hanley medical centre will facilitate 85,000 patient tests, scans, and checks every year. 

The former Sainsbury’s site, which is located on Etruria Road, was chosen due to its public transport links. This will increase the accessibility of health services. 

Ahead of the 2025 opening, training and recruitment for the facility have already started. 180 people will be employed at the new centre.
