star this property answer text <p>£2.3 billion was awarded at the 2021 Spending Review to transform diagnostic services over the next three years. Most of this will help increase the number of Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) up to 160 by March 2025, expanding and protecting elective planned diagnostic services. The remainder of the funding will increase capacity for imaging, endoscopy as well as lung and mammography screening, and improve digital diagnostics.</p><p>As of September 2023, there are 121 CDCs currently operational that have delivered over five million additional tests since July 2021, including large, standard and hub models. This compares with over 92 CDCs being operational as of September 2022, having delivered over two million additional tests since July 2021. We are on track to meet the target of up to 160 CDCs by March 2025.</p> more like this

Supply chains for medical products are complex, global, and highly regulated, making them vulnerable to a variety of shocks, including around manufacture failure, demand spikes, international trade activity and disruption to logistics. In this specific case of medicines to treat type 2 diabetes, we are aware of a global supply issue with glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists which are licensed for treating patients with type 2 diabetes. Whilst no specific discussions have been had with international counterparts, we are committed to working with international partners on the broader supply agenda.</p><p>We are continuing to work closely with manufacturers of medicines to treat type 2 diabetes and others working in the supply chain to help ensure the continued supply for patients in the United Kingdom, for example by asking suppliers to expedite deliveries. Alongside, we have provided advice for healthcare professionals on how to manage patients requiring these medicines whilst there are in shortage and are keeping this under review as the situation evolves. If any patient is concerned about their treatment, they should discuss this with their clinician at the earliest opportunity.</p>
