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.

X-Ray

doctor examining an x-rayAn X-ray is a widely used diagnostic test to examine the inside of the body. X-rays are a very effective way of detecting problems with bones, such as fractures. They can also often identify problems with soft tissue, such as pneumonia or breast cancer.

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
