Emergency contract for new end-of-life carer service in Corby after provider hits trouble A new end-of-life care provider has had to be brought in to deliver services in the Corby area after its contracted provider hit financial difficulties.

Long-established palliative care provider Marie Curie will now provide the service for the NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group after Allied Healthcare, which ran the service under its Primecare company, gave notice in November with the service ending on December 14.

The CCG said it had treated the problem as a ‘major incident’ and had to carry out an emergency tender. Northamptonshire Telegraph
