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

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

 

  • From 13th November 2014 this practice will be able to offer the Electronic Prescription Service, so if you nominate a pharmacy, your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy.

 

If you would like to take advantage of this service and haven’t yet completed a nomination form, you should contact reception or ask your preferred pharmacy to set your nomination.

 

This will not affect the way that you order / request prescriptions.

 

 

Benefits for you

  • If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.
  • Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose – whether it’s near home, work or the shops.
  • You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive.If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready for you.

 

What happens if I do not wish to use the service?

  • Nothing - You will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.

 

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

  • Yes you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

 

Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

  • Yes. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now

 

More information

  • A full list of pharmacies who are offering electronic prescriptions is listed on NHS Choices Website.

 

More information about the Electronic Prescription Service is available from your local pharmacy, at the GP surgery or on-line at www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/eps.
