Eyam Surgery Facilities

Eyam surgery provides the following facilities for its patients:

New Patients

We take patients within a 10-11 mile boundary of the surgery at Eyam and we like all our new patients to see the nurse/HCA as soon after registration as possible. This will enable them to discuss any ongoing health problems they may have. The practice is committed to health promotion and illness prevention therefore our support can be offered at this meeting.

Antenatal Clinics

They are held every other Thursday between 9.00am & 12.00noon. An appointment is necessary, there will be an opportunity to see the doctor and the midwife, Sam Ali as required or requested. The midwife will take care of you and the baby before and after the birth. She will also be at the birth (when at home) whenever possible. You will be given details of how to contact her outside of her surgery hours.

Asthma Clinics

The surgery has no specific clinics you can ring and make an appointment at any time to see one of the nurses.

Chaperones

If you would like a chaperone* to be present during an examination with any of our clinicians let the receptionist know when you make the appointment.

*A chaperone is present as a safeguard for all parties (patient and clinicians) and is a witness to continuing consent of the procedure.

Child Health Clinics

Paediatric (6-8weeks) and post birth appointments can be arranged with any doctor at any of the surgeries. When your child needs a development assessment an appointment time will be made by the Health Visitor Paula McCann. She holds drop in and appointment only clinics at both Eyam and Bradwell Surgery.

The practice nurses immunise children so an appointment can be made Mon to Fri at Eyam and Thursday afternoon at Bradwell

Podiatry Clinics (chiropody)

Sally Clark a podiatrist based at Newholme Hospital runs a clinic at Eyam Surgery every Friday morning. Appointments can only be made by contacting the team at Newholme Hospital on 01629 817973.

Family Planning Advice and Guidance

All our doctors are happy to give Family Planning advice, including the fitting of coils, implants and the "morning after" pill. Sue Dear has received special training in this area and will be pleased to assist in anyway. Annual check-ups are given and you will be invited to attend at your convenience. Dr Evans can also insert the "implanon".

Physiotherapy Clinics

Eyam Surgery patients are given a choice as to whether they receive their physiotherapy treatment at Eyam surgery, Bradwell surgery or at Newholme Hospital. The doctor will recommend physiotherapy treatment or you can refer yourself. You can make your first appointment by calling Newholme Hospital once they have received the paper copy of your referral. You will have your first appointment within 1-2weeks of the referral if you ring immediately. Arrangements can also be made for the physiotherapist to visit housebound patients in their home.

Travel Advice and Immunisation Facilities

For patients who are travelling abroad, advice is available from the nurse as to the requirements for the country of your destination. Please allow 6-8 weeks prior to the departure for vaccinations and medication. Advice for travellers is also available on the internet at :- www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
