Planned UCC reforms to face reviewUnpublished
A judicial review over the future of Corby's Urgent Care Centre is set to go ahead.
A judge gave permission for the case to proceed today ( Jun 19 ) at an initial hearing - campaigners say it's now due to be heard next month.
The "Save our Corby UCC" group had formed online initally last year over original concerns over the closure of the centre. Since then changes to how it will operate in the future have been brought forward by NHS bosses locally.
Instead of the current walk-in system, an appointments based scheme has been devised which is seeking to get sameday treatment for the public. The campaigners argue such changes need a full consultation, and not the "conversation" carried out by the NHS group.
A public engagement since then, between February and April this year, saw eighteen hundred people talk to NHS Corby face-to-face about the questions they posed on the service.
NHS Corby say their findings included two-thirds of respondents being confident the new system would mean sameday access.
Controlled explosion at Corby storeUnpublished
Jun 15 - A controlled explosion has been carried out outside a Corby supermarket after it was evacuated.
Police were called to the Tesco Extra store on Oakley Road at 1:30pm, after concerns were raised about a suspicious package found outside the store.

Northants Police later said the operation had been completed and the cordon was being lifted.
Traffic was heavy around Corby as a result of the incident and trains between Corby and Kettering were stopped for a time.
Police have thanked the public for their co-operation and patience while emergency services dealt with the incident.
George Street has love messagesUnpublished
Colourful banners promoting Corby have now reached George Street.

Report bad roads, say county councilUnpublished
A county council statement is reminding people in Corby that problems on roads need to be reported through the "Street Doctor" part of NCC's website.
