A legal victory for campaigners from Corby means plans to change how the town's urgent care centre work now have to go to a public consultation.

Members of the Save our UCC group heard in the week they had been successful in their legal action brought in protest against plans to make the centre a sameday access hub which patients would need an appointment for.

Campaigners said the public had not been properly consulted on a change away from a walk-in service and the judge in the case agreed.

NHS Corby, who plan and buy health services for the borough, say they now have to make sure there is no disruption to services ahead of the contract to run the centre running out next March.

They claim the decision of the judge in the case makes it more challenging.

Meanwhile the MP for Corby has called for a meeting with NHS Corby bosses on what happens next, saying "they have serious questions to answer".

Tom Pursglove says the urgent care services the town has need to remain.

Labour's Beth Miller has congratulated campaigners and called on the government to provide adequate healthcare funding for the area.
