Kirsty Osborn is Deputy Director of Urgent Care in Derbyshire for DHU Healthcare, she said: “We’re delighted to be able to provide this service for the people of Eyam and we are looking forward to working with our new colleagues. We’ve already been collaborating with them very closely to understand the surgery, the unique needs of our patients and to tap into their knowledge and skills to continue to deliver compassionate, high-quality patient care.

“We might be new to the area but certainly not strangers to the needs of the community. DHU’s urgent care services in the north of the county are already rated outstanding by the CQC and we are very keen to maintain that level of respectful, professional care that our patients should expect.

“As an organisation, it is important to us to make sure that our local community is involved in the way that care is delivered and can help shape the way we look after our patients, developing and building on that relationship. We look forward to working together with our people and patients to provide the best possible care.”

DHU began providing GP out-of-hours care and services in Derbyshire more than 35 years ago, now delivering NHS 111, urgent and emergency care, primary care, and community services to the Midlands – a geography of more than ten million people. Linking in closely with regional health systems, DHU remains committed to building on the recent success within primary care in the Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland area and support the NHS with its ‘right care, right time, right place’ patient care principles.
