At the moment GPs at Eyam and Bradwell Surgery are not carrying out routine face-to-face appointments. They are, however, carrying out routine and urgent telephone appointments every day. If, during a phone call, the GP deems a face-to-face appointment appropriate and necessary they will book at a time that suits you both.
The Nursing Team is carrying out: annual reviews for patients with long-term conditions; INR appointments, BP checks requested by the doctors and blood tests face-to-face. The reception team will contact you when your review is due. As well as annual reviews the Nursing Team are running flu clinics at Eyam and Bradwell Surgery. Please contact the surgery if you think you are entitled to the vaccine.
We have not been given an absolute solution of how and when we can vaccinate the 50-64 age group by the NHS, yet. We will, however, keep you posted on here, at the surgery and on our Facebook page.
How to Request an Appointment
You can request an appointment in the following ways:
All consultations are appointments only.
Each appointment will be 10 minutes long unless it is explained to the patient that they will have a reduced time with the Doctor as there are no appointments available and they are being “fitted in”.
Emergency appointments will be available throughout each session and will be 10 minutes long.
Late evening and early morning appointments are available for people who cannot make normal surgery times.
There are designated appointments available in the morning and afternoons with our doctors and nurses. We will give you an approximate time window in which they should call you back, but, please be aware sometimes medical situations occur, which must be dealt with before telephone consultations can be made.
Please note your designated clinician will only try and call you twice. Ensure you give the receptionist the most appropriate telephone number the clinician should contact you on.
Late arrival for Appointments
Please be on time for your appointment. Surgeries are usually fully booked, we will try to fit you in during the session however it may be necessary for you to wait until the end of the surgery. It may also be necessary to make a new appointment on a different day.
If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know as soon as possible – this may enable someone else to be seen.
