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.

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning

A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
