As with many health services, the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in increased pressures on diagnostic services, creating the need for radical change to improve services, patient outcomes and cope with the huge increase in demand. CDCs offer the opportunity to transform clinical pathways, ensuring that they are efficient and effective and deliver the right tests, at the right time and in the right place to support early diagnosis and inform the advice and treatment for each patient. The pathways will be innovative and transformative and will ensure the majority of tests are sequenced, offering convenience to patients, and provided earlier in patients journey, assisting elective recovery and meeting the faster diagnostics standard.
