Noticeboard

 

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 the Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccine, or one dose of the Janssen single-dose vaccine. Vaccine status will be available through the NHS COVID Pass service from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

  • the NHS website 

  • 119 - by requesting a paper letter

You will need to register to use the online services, if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.

If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future and have had your second dose (or one dose of the Janssen single-dose vaccine) more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 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 about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.

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

 

 

                                          

                                         

Telephone Advice

Sometimes you may not necessarily want to see a Doctor or Nurse and would  just like some advice or other information regarding results .You can request a  ROUTINE TELEPHONE APPOINTMENT  or book a triaged call   .We will endeavour to return your call  that same day  unless demand is very high.Thus  it may be  quite late in the day  or evening so this is not suitable for urgent conditions.

 

TRIAGE Calls

This is when there are  no more appointments  left for that  morning and you think that you may need to see someone  or speak to someone but you do not think that it is an emergency as such.We will call you back as soon as we can after surgery , and see if it can be dealt with by telephone or arrange to see you at a time that is appropriate  to the  condition .

 

Urgent calls

We will always  deal with Urgent calls immediately  , but please restrict these to genuinely urgent conditions as it means that pre booked patients may have to wait while we deal with an urgent call .

 

Remember you can always call NHS 111
