War of words over planned changes at Corby Urgent Care Centre

Full story in The Northamptonshire Telegraph, 30 January 2018

Members of an action group set up to save Corby’s Urgent Care Centre say they are ‘incredulous’ over changes which are set to be approved tonight (Tuesday). Corby CCG’s governing body will meet at 6pm to approve changes including moving from a walk-in site to an appointment-based system. The Save Corby Urgent Care Action Group says it has grave concerns over what it describes as a “complete downgrade”. A spokesman for the group said: “We have been asked not to call it a ‘downgrade’, but we are extremely hard-pushed to accept this is an extension of the service we have in existence.
