Read the full Judicial Review judgement on the changes at Corby Urgent Care Centre
Plans to turn Corby Urgent Care Centre into an appointment-only service have been put on hold following the Judicial Review ruling after the Save Corby Urgent Care Centre Action Group challenged the proposed change in use.
As summarised by the Northants Telegraph, the judicial review found that Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG):
- failed to consult the public despite repeated promises it would do so
- breached its public sector equality duty by failing to consider the impact of the decision on those with learning disabilities, mental health problems and non-English speakers
- and acted in breach of its duty to involve patients in its decision The ruling by HHJ Jarman QC could have an impact on other CCGs around the country, many of whom are looking at ways to change their own urgent care offer.
