Council seeks further explanation over doctors' surgery
 
A response to parish council concerns over the timescale for the reopening of the doctors' surgery in North Weald following refurbishment has been described as "quite pathetic".

Debbie Bodhanya, managing partner at The Limes Medical Centre, has told North Weald Bassett Parish Council she does not know when the surgery, in Wheelers Farm Gardens, will reopen after the work was held up by NHS England approval.

A message on the practice's website states: "Due to preparation for refurbishment, North Weald Surgery will be closed from 10 July until further notice."

Councillors are concerned at the length of time the work is taking and are to invite Mrs Bodhanya to a parish council meeting to explain the situation.

Councillor Sheila Jackman told Monday's parish council meeting: "I object to the response. I think it's quite inadequate. 

"Our residents should have a surgery there and I don't believe the surgery is unaware of the timescale of the works. 

"Our residents require that service back and as soon as possible."

Parish council chairman Alan Buckley described the response as "quite pathetic".

Councillor Andy Tyler said: "There is a need. We have a very high level of sheltered accommodation."
