MEMBERS of the local health trust board have this afternoon agreed to go ahead with an engagement process looking at the future of Buxton’s Corbar Birth Centre.

The decision was approved by members of the NHS Derby City and NHS Derbyshire County cluster at their meeting this afternoon and will see a pre-engagement process, involving groups such as local GPs and the Maternity Services Liaison Committee, take place between today and July 20 before a formal consultation involving the general public takes place from August 1 to October 23.

Any decision on whether to close Corbar Birth Centre for births would then be taken after that.
