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.

Travel Vaccinations

Travel Vaccinations

Wallingbrook Health Group is able to offer specific vaccinations for your travel requirements, which are free on the NHS. Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services we provide. We can give the following vaccinations subject to availability – tetanus, diphtheria and polio combined vaccine, hepatitis A and typhoid. We will ask you to help us by letting us know if you require these vaccinations for your trip abroad. Please visit website www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk.

It is important to make your travel vaccination appointment as early as possible  - at least 6-8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse, if several vaccinations are needed.  Vaccinations must be completed 4 weeks before you travel to be fully effective. 

For those patients without internet access, please let the patient service team know so that they can print off the relevant information for you. If you require any of the above vaccinations please make an appointment with the practice nurse.

We no longer prescribe malaria prophylactic tablets. These can be obtained through the private travel clinics, larger supermarkets with pharmacies e.g. Tesco. For any other vaccinations you need, that are not available on the NHS, you will be asked to make other arrangements. To help you we have a list of private travel clinics you can access below.

European Health Insurance Card

The old E111 paper form has been substituted with the new European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Your EHIC lets you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free, in all European Economic Area (EEA). It will cover you for treatment that is needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return. It also covers you for treatment of pre-existing medical conditions and for routine maternity care, as long as you’re not going abroad to give birth.

It is advisable for all UK residents travelling abroad to carry these cards. It should be ensured before every trip that the card is valid. EHIC is valid for up to five years.

Apply for your FREE EHIC card at this website: https://www.gov.uk/european-health-insurance-card
