It is the job of Corby Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure that the right healthcare services are in place for the local population.
Sometimes this means making changes to deliver improvements or to adapt to new circumstances. Services must constantly evolve to take account of best practice, medical advances and people's needs.
This section helps to explain why change is sometimes necessary and provides examples of how we are shaping services for the better - such as the creation of Corby Urgent Care Centre and the positive impact it's had on A&E services at Kettering General Hospital.
Wherever a significant service change is proposed, we are fully committed to ensuring that you will be given a chance to have your say through consultation.
