Resetting Health Care in Corby

Corby Urgent Care Centre opened in 2012 and consolidated several urgent care services into one place. It was commissioned on the premise that it would reduce the overall spend on urgent care in Corby but analysis of the UCC activity identified that the majority of presentations were more appropriate for primary care. It was concluded that the model was neither financially sustainable or resolving the growth in demand and two alternative service models were proposed by Corby CCG. The clinical senate was asked to consider the clinical viability of the two options presented.
