PATIENT NOTICE

Retirement of Dr Diana Wielink

As many of you may be aware, Dr Wielink has been off work since April 2018 due to a serious illness.   It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Dr Wielink has decided to retire from Wallingbrook, earlier than planned, due to her on-going health issues.

Dr Wielink joined Chulmleigh Health Centre in 1994 and has seen the group through many changes. Over the last 24 years Dr Wielink has made an immense contribution to the practice; she has been passionate about rural healthcare and instrumental in shaping and expanding the service, including the opening of the new practice in 2003. Dr Wielink has always been a true patient advocate and we know her patients will be devastated with this news.

We all send her our very best wishes for the future and that she takes this time to rest and recover.

We will be reallocating Dr Wielink’s patient list over the next month.

Please DO NOT ring up just to find out who your GP is.  We request that you ask the Patient Services Team when you next contact the surgery.

We would like to thank Dr Wielink’s patients for their understanding during this period.
