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."

Kettering MP Hollobone won't call for May's resignation

The Conservative MP for Kettering, Philip Hollobone, says he won't support calls for Theresa May to resign as prime minister.

Speaking to BBC Radio Northampton, he said: "I think she's done the right thing in being determined to press on and form a government. The all-important Brexit negotiations start in 10 days' time."

However, he added that there had been shortcomings with the party's campaign.

"It was all going well until the manifesto was published," Mr Hollobone said.

"It really hadn't been thought through: the social care proposals, the winter fuel allowance proposals, weren't presented properly and there was all sorts of confusion.

"The election clearly didn't go to plan and we've got to now work with the sum that we've got. She's doing the right thing by pressing on, putting a new government together and getting Brexit off to the best start we can achieve"

Mrs May has said she will put together a government with the support of the Democratic Unionists (DUP) that can provide can provide "certainty" for the future.

The Tories needed 326 seats to win another majority but, with 649 out of the 650 seats declared, they fell short and must rely on the DUP to continue to rule.

Kettering: MP Hollobone critical of Conservative manifesto presentation

The incumbent MP for Kettering, Philip Hollobone, wasted no time, once re-elected, to launch a scathing attack on his own party's manifesto promises.

All was going really well until the Conservative Party manifesto was published - and after that things got very, very difficult. I think, presentationally, some of the Conservative policies - things like social care, the winter fuel allowance - were all presented in a very unhelpful way. From that point onwards, the Conservatives were on the back foot.

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%

Blue, blue, electric blue: Northamptonshire shows its colours

BBC Local Live

And there you have it. Seven constituencies. Seven Conservative MPs.

Each clung on to their seats, including the one vacated by David Mackintosh in Northampton South.

The county's MPs are:

  • Corby: Tom Pursglove
  • Daventry: Chris Heaton-Harris
  • Kettering: Philip Hollobone
  • Northampton North: Michael Ellis
  • Northampton South: Andrew Lewer
  • South Northamptonshire: Andrea Leadsom
  • Wellingborough: Peter Bone

The headlines so far: Northamptonshire stays blue

BBC Local Live

Four out of Northamptonshire's seven constituencies have now declared - and it's a sea of blue.

  • Chris Heaton-Harris holds on in Daventry
  • Andrea Leadsom has held South Northamptonshire
  • Peter Bone holds on to Wellingborough - but with a slimmer majority
  • And Philip Hollobone keeps his Kettering seat

But will there be an upset to come in Northampton North? Watch this space!

When can we expect results in your area?

Kettering has declared - but it's the only one so far.

Wellingborough could be next - not at 01:30 as we originally thought - but certainly within the hour.

South Northamptonshire is due at about 03:15.

We're expecting the two Northampton seats to be declared about 03:30.

Daventry may declare its result about 04:35, we hear.

Corby could be much later - about 05:35.

So unless I nip out for a quick cuppa at the worst possible point - you'll learn who your MP is here first.

If you're just dipping in - here's what's happened in the last half hour:

  • Philip Hollobone has regained his Conservative seat in Kettering
  • UKIP's Sam Watts has resigned from the party as the Corby count continues
  • Early indications suggest Labour could regain Northampton North

Hollobone 'let down by national party'

Orla Moore

BBC Local Live

Despite his win, the result in Kettering does constitute a 2.6% swing to Labour.

Philip Hollobone has told BBC Radio Northampton he felt let down by the national party, as the Conservatives were doing well until the manifesto was published.

"It is important to concentrate on policies rather than personalities," he said.
