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
Most patients on regular repeat prescriptions will be provided with a computer printed request form. To order medication tick the items you require and do one of the following:
Please allow 72 hours before collection allowing for weekends and Bank Holidays. Some local Chemists offer a collection service and you should contact them yourself to organise this.
Due to the coronavirus we will now be taking prescription requests over the telephone from 12.00 pm
If you need 4 or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre paid certificate (see Prescription Fees page ).
EPS : the electronic prescription service is now up and running . You can nominate a pharmacy to process your prescriptions, then your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to that pharmacy, saving you from having to come to the surgery to pick them up. If you haven’t already nominated a pharmacy, any member of the reception team can help you.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 2 days , excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
