KEEPING YOU SAFE

Face coverings are still a requirement in NHS settings.  All patients are required to wear a face covering on entry to the practice.  If you are exempt, we will provide you with a visor to wear whilst in the building.  If you are not able to wear a face mask, we may make adjustments to compensate e.g. you may be asked to wait outside and you may have to be seen in a different room.

We ask all patients to treat our staff with courtesy and respect when they remind patients to wear a face covering.  Covid-19 rates are still high and the guidance is aimed at protecting vulnerable patients and staff.  Thank you for your understanding.

How to access your Covid-19 Vaccination Status:

You can access your vaccination status via the the free NHS App from 17th May.  You can access the app through mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets.  Proof of your Covid-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App.  We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 Vaccination Status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 from 17th May and ask for a letter to be posted to you OR you can request a letter via the NHS website here.  This must be at least 5 days after you have complete the course of the vaccination.  We expect the letter to take up to 5 days reach you.

DO NOT CONTACT YOUR GP SURGERY about your Covid-19 vaccination status.  GP's cannot provide letters showing your Covid-19 vaccination status.
