Welcome to Wallingbrook Health Group
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated teams are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Wheelchair access is available at all our surgeries.

Flu Vaccinations 2019- update
Our flu clinics are later than usual this year due to a further delay in the supply of the influenza vaccine intended for under-65s in at risk groups.
The flu vaccination clinics will run from mid October through to early December.
Patients can book their flu vaccination appointment online or contact the surgery.
Children's Flu Clinics
The children’s flu clinic scheduled on Wednesday 23rd October at Wallingbrook Health Centre has been cancelled due to vaccination delivery delays. We kindly ask that parents and carers contact the surgery to reschedule their child’s appointment.
We would like to offer our apologies for the inconvenience. Public Health England had originally advised that the children’s flu vaccination would be available to order week commencing Monday 7th October which allowed a two week period for the vaccines to be delivered as per previous years. We subsequently received an update at the end of last week informing practices they would not be able to place flu vaccine orders until week commencing 14th October. We have had further communication confirming the vaccination will not arrive in time for clinic on Wednesday 23 October, and that we can only order 40 of the children's flu vaccinations at this present time.
We have rescheduled clinics for the beginning of November.
Please contact the surgery on 01769 580295 to rearrange your child’s appointment.
Improved Access To Your GP Surgery
Patients across Mid Devon are now able to make routine appointments at a GP practice during evenings and at weekends.
The aim of the GP service is to make it easier for people to get an appointment at a time that suits them.
This scheme is an extension of the usual GP practice services, not a walk-in service, with people still needing to make an appointment if they want to see a GP in the evening or at the weekend.
Practices are working together to establish a service that meets the needs of the public, and GP practices will be promoting the service to patients.
If you are a patient registered at one of the practices listed on this page you will be able to book a routine appointment evenings and weekends with the participating practices on the timetable.
Please click here to view the participating practices timetable.
Appointments should be booked with the participating practice but if you have any comments or feedback regarding this service then please contact email@example.com
Consultations between 7.30-8.00am
Do you struggle to get an appointment due to your working hours?
If so, our new extended hours service might be just the thing to help you.
We are now offering consultations some weekday mornings 7.30 - 8.00 am.
To book an appointment, please telephone the surgery or book an appointment online.
It is Self Care Week this week - 18 Nov to 24 Nov 2019
During Self Care Week we would like to remind you that it is important to look after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercises, or even down to managing simple conditions such as headaches, colds and flu, or living with a long-term health problem, such as COPD, asthma, kidney disease or diabetes.
Staying healthy is important for everyone, particularly if you are living with a long-term condition. This means eating healthily, exercising regularly, quitting smoking and drinking in moderation.
Some health conditions such as sprains, colds and coughs can be treated at home or with advice from a pharmacist without a trip to the GP or A&E. The NHS 111 website, NHS app or phoning 111 are all good places to get advice.
Factsheets are available online to provide you with information about what you can expect to happen, how you can help yourself, what ‘red flags’ to look out for and where to find further information. Find more at www.selfcareforum.org/fact-sheets.
