FACE COVERING UPDATE

Government restrictions will lift on the 19 July 2021.  However, Erimus Practice must consider the safety of all patients.  Therefore, the practice will continue to operate a policy wherby staff, patients and visitors will be required to wear a face covering.

This is to minimise disruption to our service as well as protecting out most vulnerable patients when accessing care.  There is a likelihood that some of these patients may have covid without realising it and may not have been vaccinated.

Locally, covid rates are still on the increase and we do not feel it is safe to relax our safety procedures.

If you are visiting the practice and have no face mask, unless exempt, you will be asked to wear a face covering.  Patients declining to wear a face coverig will be triaged on an individual basis.

We would like to thank you for your cooperation and support

COVID UPDATE

A POP UP Vaccination Clinic will be held in the former GEORGE STORE in the Cleveland Centre on Wednesday 12th January from 10 am till 6 pm for First, Second and Booster Vaccinations

ABUSE OF STAFF

A recent campaign has recently being released by Practice Managers highlighting what our staff have to endure on a daily basis.  Our staff are here to help you, we must ask that you treat our staff with the respect that they deserve.  We would also like to thank those patients who treat our staff with kindness and respect.

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you are planning to go abroad and believe that you may need vaccinations, it is advised that you book your appointment with the practice nurse at least six weeks prior to your planned travel date, with details of travel such as:-

  • The country you are visiting
  • The length of stay
  • Type of holiday (resort, back packing or work)

We are able to provide all vaccinations, except the following

  • Yellow fever
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Tick borne Encephalitis

We can advise and issue prescriptions for Malaria Prophylaxis, however this not available on NHS and will carry a charge as a private prescription, the pharmacist will also charge for the tablets.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below

 

Europe Europe & Russia North America North America
Central America Central America South America South America
Caribbean Caribbean Africa Africa
Middle East Middle East Central Asia Central Asia
East Asia East Asia Australasia Australasia and Pacific

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
