The Community Diagnostic Centres Framework Agreement is aimed at helping commissioners source additional digitally connected diagnostic capacity in England.

Scope is defined under:
Section 4 - Minimum Requirements & Section 5 - Optional Requirements
This Framework agreement has the ability to be refreshed at any point by NHS England, as such the list of appointed providers is subject to modification.
We strongly recommend that you use the framework database to search for modality(s) and utilise the reporting function in the database to identify providers.
List of Appointed providers
We have developed a Framework Database with a leading NHS web-based analytics provider 'AdviseInc' that allows commissioners to search for service modalities in what configuration that they choose.
If you require technical support relating to the database, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone : 0207 112 9222
Within this section you will find useful documents.
We have produced a Framework Buying Guide to support commissioners in their approach to commissioning services related to a community diagnostic centre.
Framework duration: The term of the Framework Agreement and therefore appointment onto the Framework will be for a maximum period of 3 years with the option to extend it for up to a further 2 years.
Framework reference number: NHS England – AGEM 44791
