Several appointments have been cancelled at a GP surgery in Braintree. 

Residents have complained about their appointments being cancelled at Church Lane Surgery today. 

A spokesperson for Church Lane Surgery said: "Unfortunately three scheduled GPs were unable to come to the Practice today (Monday) which has resulted in a number of appointments being rescheduled; with all affected patients directly contacted and offered an alternative appointment time this week.

"The Practice remains open and is seeing patients requiring urgent consultations, while extra GP sessions have been scheduled for the rest of the week."

The surgery remains open with a GP and a nurse practitioner on duty. 

The surgery, a replacement for St Lawrence, opened at the purpose-built facility in the College at Braintree's campus in March.
