People in Scarborough have until Sunday to make their voices heard about the future of urgent care services in Scarborough.

A consultation into a major NHS overhaul of services has been taking place since January 6, but patients still have time to find out more and fill in a questionnaire.

The proposals include a new walk-in service in Scarborough, as the Castle Health Centre’s walk-in contract will come to an end in October.

The issue has proved controversial in the town, with borough councillor Colin Challen launching a petition to try and save the service.

The petition has attracted 1,200 signatures and was handed to members of NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group yesterday.

Health bosses are urging people to attend an extra meeting - due to public demand - this Saturday at 10am at Scarborough Library, which will be independently chaired by Scarborough’s mayor Andrew Backhouse.
