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.

 

 

Practice Pharmacist - Karen Acott

Karen Acott is part of the clinical team. As practice Pharmacist she is trained to work directly with patients. Karen has detailed knowledge about drugs and their effects, and because Karen has extensive experience with patients, she routinely prescribes medications and monitors patients. Among other tasks, Karen provides routine clinics at the surgery to address patient concerns, diagnosing potentially untreated minor illnesses and conditions, consulting with patients on the effects of the drugs, and supporting patients with their prescribed drug regimes.

Historically the fundamental role of pharmacists as a healthcare practitioner was to distribute drugs to doctors, for medication that had been prescribed to patients. In more modern times, pharmacists advise patients and health care providers on the selection, dosages, interactions and side effects of medications and act as a learned intermediary between a prescriber and a patient. Pharmacists monitor the health and progress of patients to ensure the safe and effective use of medication.

More recently, some pharmacists have independent prescribing qualifications and are able to provide improved access to medicines. Many of these pharmacists are referred to as clinical/hospital pharmacists when they work in hospitals supporting consultant teams but are increasingly found in Doctors’ surgeries supporting the primary healthcare team, where they are commonly known as practice pharmacists or pharmacist practitioners (usually when they have prescribing rights).

At Wallingbrook Health Group, all patients are encouraged to speak to our Pharmacist Karen, who will be able to help with medication queries, shortage of medicines, medication reviews, discharge medication and chronic disease information. Karen will always liaise with your Doctor directly if there are complex issues that require a Doctor’s input and in some cases generate an appropriate appointment.
