Save Corby Urgent Care Centre

We, the residents of Corby and its hinterlands, call on Corby Clinical Commissioning Governing Body to make the decision to keep open the Corby Urgent Care Centre, delivering the same quality of service as was first commissioned under the same specification signed in 2012.

Why is this important?

It is important that the same quality of service is delivered in Corby as has been delivered in the past five years: to ensure that the people of Corby continue to receive first rate emergency care close to home, relieving pressure on Kettering general hospital A&E department and keeping prices for an emergency service down to a manageable level.

Reasons for signing

  • Having had to use the service for my baby this weekend, it proves that Corby needs this centre to stay open!!
  • It's the only real option we have. It's been used by my family on 5 or 6 occasions and been a fantastic service.
  • I really believe the Urgent Care Centre helps reduce pressure on the A&E at Kettering and provides an invaluable service for people with perhaps less urgent needs to be addressed. I had torn my calf muscle and needed urgent help, advice and reassurance that underneath it all, then all was going to be ok. The advice proved invaluable and the support given was priceless for me.
