Parish council highlights GP surgery issue again
 
The continued absence of a doctors' surgery in North Weald is being highlighted again by North Weald Bassett Parish Council.

The branch surgery at Wheelers Farm Gardens has been closed since last July.

Councillors have been told that refurbishment plans for the building, which is owned by Hanover Housing Association, had been delayed by NHS England.

The parish council pressed The Limes for the return of a surgery, and has also contacted MP Alex Burghart over the issue.

He has told the council that he has contacted The Limes for an explanation.

Meanwhile the parish council has suggested taking the matter up with Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, and Hanover.

Parish clerk Sue De Luca told Monday's parish council meeting that an unnamed developer was due to have talks with The Limes about providing a surgery building as part of a possible development.

Commenting on the ongoing situation which has left North Weald without GP access in the village, council vice-chairman Brian Eldridge said: "I think this is ridiculous."

Councillor Elaine Godwin-Brown supported the suggestion of councillor Sheila Jackman that Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt should be contacted saying: "If there is anybody in a position to do something it's him. "

Councillor Andy Tyler said: "The whole thing hinges on the refurbishment of this building."

Supporting the suggestion that Hanover Housing Association should be contacted, he added: "The more ripples we create in this pond the more chances there are we will get a response."
