TELEPHONE APPOINTMENT BOOKING ONLY
In light of the evolving coronavirus pandemic and in line with national guidance, Evelyn Medical Centre has moved to a telephone appointment only system.
We apologise for the inconvenience, but this is essential to minimise social contact and ensure the safety of all of our patients and that of our staff.
In the coming days, we will be updating information and processes to meet this challenge, so please bear with us. More information on these changes will be posted soon.
Appointments for the doctor or nurse may be made by phoning 01433 621 557 between 08:00 and 18:30. During busy periods you may be asked to initially discuss your problem with a member of staff to enable a doctor to assess its urgency and to get you the most appropriate appointment or advice.
We also offer registered patients the use of a secure online link ( at the top of this page) to view, book and cancel GP appointments. You must be a fully registered patient and you will need a letter from us containing your personal access codes. To get this letter you will need to come to reception and ask for the “Registration for EMIS Access” your personal details contained on the surgery computer will be checked with you and you will be given a leaflet explaining how Emis Access works and a letter which will supply you with the information needed to Register with Emis Access.
We will need some form of photographic identification such as a passport, driving licence, NHS card.
You can phone any time up until 12:00 to request a phone call from a doctor. You will be asked some brief details regarding your call including your name and a number and this information will be passed to a doctor.Due to doctors other arrangements we cannot guarantee what time of day they will be able to call, therefore please make sure you give us a number that you will be contactable on all day. The GP may give advice which will be relayed to you by a member of the team other than a GP if appropriate.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly.
At certain times in the year, we accept medical students from the Sheffield Medical School. They join various members of staff in routine clinics and surgeries. If you do not wish them to be present during your consultation, please let us know. We are grateful for your help in supporting the training of the country’s future doctors.
If you wish for a chaperone to be present at your consultation please advise the doctor or nurse, or ask at reception as you arrive. Our practice chaperone policy is on display in the waiting room and on our website.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
