The Wood Green Community Diagnostic Centre (CDC) is run by Whittington Health NHS Trust. It brings health to the high street offering blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound scans, an eye (ophthalmology) clinic, MRI and CT scans to residents across north central London from The Mall, Wood Green.

The centre offers extended operating times Mon-Fri 8.30am-7.00pm, Saturdays 9.00am-5.00pm, making it even easier for local people to access diagnostic tests. 80% of residents in Haringey can get to the CDC in less than 45mins by public transport, making it quicker for most people as there is no hospital in the borough.
