GP Appointments - Update for patients  

You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17th May, doors at GP Practices are ‘re-opening’. As you will know, our GP practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone appointments with face to face consultations available to those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread. 
 
GP practices are being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit of time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe. As we wait for further national guidance on doing that, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands to our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients – particularly those who need us the most.   
 
We will keep you updated as soon as we are clear about how we can re-open our reception areas safely. Thank you for your support.

COVID Vaccinations - information

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

Registering for the NHS App is easy to download and you will have access, once identification has been provided and it’s been verified. 

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. Please do not contact the practice.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

More information can be found on the GOV.UK website.  Please also see information on how to use the NHS App.
