Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. It’s important to stay cautious and help protect yourself and others. If you think you might have COVID-19 SYMPTOMS take a PCR test. The Gov.UK website has information how to stay safe and help prevent the spread.

As most legal restrictions to control COVID-19 have been lifted at step 4, we are still asking all staff and patients to wear a face covering.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 Vaccination Status When Travelling Abroad

Proof of your vaccination status is now available on the NHS app.  Please see the COVID-19 vaccination link on how to view your vaccination details.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you.  This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine.  The letter may take up to 5 days to reach you.

Further information can be found on the Government Website on how to demonstrate your coronavirus vaccination status when travelling abroad.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SURGERY ABOUT YOUR COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS.  GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
