Corby urgent care centre group seeks legal challenge

Corby urgent care centre group seeks legal challenge Campaigners trying to save the existing service at Corby’s Urgent Care Centre have launched a fundraising bid to gain a judicial review into the decision to alter the service.

The Urgent Care Centre in Cottingham Road has been under intense scrutiny since the health body Corby CCG, which plans and pays for the borough’s health services, said the current service provision was not right for the town.

Bosses want to keep the facility open, but make it a pre-booked appointment-only service to ease pressure on local GPs and create extra slots for people who find it difficult to get an appointment at their own surgery. There will continue to be x-ray services but observation bays will be scrapped. The geographical base at Cottingham Road is also currently up for negotiation. Northamptonshire Telegraph
