Health bosses ditch plans for village surgery

Halstead Gazette: Health bosses ditch plans for village surgery Health bosses ditch plans for village surgery

Villagers may be left without easy access to their doctor after proposals for a new GP surgery were rejected by health bosses.

Two sites, in Nuns Walk Field and the Hunnable Industrial Estate, had been identified as possible locations for a new surgery in Great Yeldham.

But NHS England has said the plans do not fit its current spending guidelines.

Instead, it wants to build a new surgery in Sible Hedingham, which will serve the surrounding villages.

Iona Parker, district councillor for Yeldham, has campaigned for a new surgery.

She said: “Lots of elderly people in the village don’t have transport and I worry about how they would get to a surgery in Sible Hedingham."
