Doctors’ surgeries in Sible Hedingham, Castle Hedingham and Great Yeldham could be closed in favour of one site in Sible Hedingham from which all surgeries will operate.

NHS England has released the proposals which will replace previous plans to open a new surgery in Great Yeldham.

Sonia Allfrey, chair of Castle Hedingham Parish Council, said: “That is a terrible idea. People come from the surrounding towns to use our practice in Castle Hedingham and they will now have to all travel to Sible Hedingham for their care."
