NHS Corby have revealed proposals for the Urgent Care Centre on Cottingham Road - in future requiring patients to book an appointment before they get there, by phone or online.

The site would be re-dubbed a "Same Day Access Hub". 

NHS Corby said their proposals had been influenced by the views of local people taken in the last few months of last year. Additional primary care provision is also being promised, 

Local MP Tom Pursglove welcomed the retention of urgent care services, but later added that patients should not come up against hurdles to access the care they need.

A public meeting about the moves is to be held next Tuesday ( Jan 30 ) in the Cube from 6pm.
