To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what his policy is on the future of Urgent Care Centres (a) in Northamptonshire and (b) across England.
20 November 2017
The Next Steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View set out our intention for the ‘roll-out of standardised new urgent treatment centres’. Urgent treatment centres are community and primary care facilities providing access to urgent treatment for a local population, and will build upon the current range of services such as Walk-in Centres, Urgent Care Centres and Minor Injury Units.
Decisions on specific centres are made at a local level, in line with the Five Year Forward View.
