July 19th

We are aware of the planned move to lifting the remaining Covid restrictions in England from the 19th of July.  Medical settings are a higher risk environment and will need to be subject to more control measures than other public facilities.  We are acting very cautiously and are maintaining social distancing, face coverings and PPE for clinical staff and request that patients continue to wear face coverings whilst inside our buildings.  The delta variant is more transmissible and patients may come to the surgery when they are contagious.  It is our duty to do all we can to keep both our patients and our staff safe whilst we deliver our care.  Thank you.

Covid Passports

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: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

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

If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have 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.

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.
