URGENT PATIENT NOTICE

Due to health issues Dr Wielink is currently away from the practice, unfortunately we are not in a position to confirm when Dr Wielink will return.

Whilst Dr Wielink is away from the practice we are attempting to secure locum cover at short notice. However patients should be aware there are significant GP shortages in Devon.

This will have an effect on the service we provide; priority will be given to those with the greatest need including serious and potentially life threatening illnesses, the young, frail elderly and palliative care patients.

We would value your cooperation and understanding during this time. You may notice pre-bookable routine appointments will be difficult to arrange during this period.
