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.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
