Local politicians meet discuss Corby Urgent Care Centre future

Politicians have been meeting with health officials in the latest attempt to safeguard the future of services at Corby's Urgent Care Centre.

Lakeside Plus, which runs the service, had threatened legal action against the NHS over a new contract for operating it - but that has now been dropped.

However, they say that they can no longer afford to keep running the centre and may have to reduce services later this year.

On Monday, the leader of Corby Borough Council, Tom Beattie, met with the NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG); while the MPs representing Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough met with Lakeside Plus.

"We are very willing to have conversations with the CCG about continuing to deliver the service," Lorna Garner from Lakeside Plus told the BBC.

"The CCG have no intention of closing the centre. [But] it's the level of service they [patients] get, it's the quality of clinical care that is delivered [that must be safeguarded]. That is our main concern - that that standard is continued.

"The building is irrelevant, it's what happens inside it that really matters."

An independent expert is expected to rule early next month as to how much it should cost to run the centre.

The CCG has declined to comment until that ruling is made.

Tom Pursglove, Conservative MP for Corby, said: "If there's absolutely no chance whatsoever of this service closing, then they [the CCG] need to say that.

"This is a case of keeping full scale pressure on this. We simply can't get into a situation where this service is lost - it would be wholly unacceptable."

Government 'in chaos', says Corby Labour candidate

Meanwhile, the Labour candidate for Corby in last week's general election, Beth Miller, says the government is "in chaos" after a hung parliament.

Ms Miller finished second to Conservative candidate Tom Pursglove in the north Northamptonshire constituency, but the Tories lost their parliamentary majority in Thursday's snap election.

"They were expecting a huge landslide," she told BBC Radio Northampton. "I think there was a degree of arrogance there."

Prime Minister Theresa May says she will try to do a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - Northern Ireland's largest unionist party.

The DUP has 10 MPs and if they vote with the Conservatives, the government will be able to get its business through Parliament.

"What we've got is a chaotic situation with the Tories relying on the DUP, despite disagreeing on so many issues," Ms Miller added.

Later on Monday, Mrs May will face tough questions from her backbenchers at a meeting of the 1922 Committee.

Corby and East Northants: 'Big challenges' ahead

Orla Moore

BBC Local Live

Peter Bone hot-footed it over from his Wellingborough victory - to see young whipper-snapper Tom Pursglove hold Corby.

The constituency was targeted by Labour, which lost the seat in 2015 and only needed a 2.15% swing to regain it.

Here's a flavour of the night.

This has been a very difficult election and whoever forms the next government tomorrow morning is going to have to handle the very big challenges that we face. Whether it's standing up for our steel industry, whether it's protecting our villages from unwanted over-development, whether it's delivering the Rushden Lakes development - these are all key priorities that we have to see delivered in the weeks, months and years ahead."

Tom Pursglove, MP for Corby

What's happened in Northamptonshire overnight?

If you're just waking up, it's as you were in Northamptonshire, but it's been a difficult ride for our seven new Tory MPs - as it has been nationally for the Conservatives.

  • In Northampton North, the majority for Michael Ellis now stands at just 807 after the vote went down to the wire with former Labour MP Sally Keeble
  • Likewise in Northampton South - new Conservative candidate Andrew Lewer pipped Kevin McKeever by just 1,159 votes, in a night of Labour resurgence and UKIP decline
  • In Daventry, however, it was pretty much as you were for Chris Heaton-Harris, who largely maintained his 40% majority from 2015
  • Same for Northamptonshire South, where Andrea Leadsom maintained her large majority despite losing 3,576 votes
  • The Labour swing in Corby failed to materialise, with Tom Pursglove marginally increasing his majority
  • In Kettering, Philip Hollobone won comfortably but lost ground to Labour
  • Likewise in Wellingborough, where fellow Brexiteer Peter Bone won comfortably but had to fend off an increase in Labour vote share of 14.5%
