Diagnostic and Treatment Centre (DATC)

The Diagnostic and Treatment Centre (DATC) is an interdisciplinary diagnostic process to determine the medical, psychological and functional capability of someone who is living with frailty.

Who are we?

We are a team of doctors, registered nurses, therapists (occupational therapists and physiotherapists) and health care assistants who offer holistic assessments to older people living in Guildford and Waverley.

Who do we work with?

We work closely with your GP and other local community services.

What do we do?

We offer clinic appointments for holistic multi-disciplinary assessment of health & medical needs, so that we can work with individuals and carers to help you with being independent at home.

Who do we see?

The Diagnostic and Treatment Centre primarily care for older people in the Guildford & Waverley community, following a referral from your GP or hospital consultant.

The main function of our service is to diagnose any conditions that you have and to treat you, and in turn refer you back to your GP and to other community services for on-going management of your condition.

When is the service open?

The service is open Monday to Friday, 8.30 am – 4.30 pm (excluding bank holidays).

We very much value feedback from all of our patients, and may ask you to complete a satisfaction questionnaire after your appointment.
