NHS COVID Pass
People in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can use the NHS COVID Pass to demonstrate their COVID-19 status.
If you’re aged 18 or over, you can get an NHS COVID Pass for domestic venues and events.
If you’re aged 16 or over you can get an NHS COVID Pass for travel abroad but you should follow the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to.
A full course is currently two doses of the Moderna, AstraZeneca or 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 5 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.
At The Surgery
We need to continue to do everything we can to protect the vulnerable members of the community and protect your surgery team so that we can continue to offer you an effective service.
Your GP practice is open and appointments are being delivered face-to-face, online and over the telephone.
Face-to-face appointments, when an intervention is essential for your care, continue to be available to all patients. Appointments with the nursing/HCA team for things such as blood tests, injections, including contraceptive injections and childhood immunisations, baby checks and cervical smears can be booked online or with the reception team. For the foreseeable future the vast majority of appointments with the GP/ANPs and long term condition reviews with the nurses, will be via telephone or video.
For appointments with the GP/ANP team you will initially be signposted by the reception team using guidelines from the clinicans in order to make a key decision on whether to offer a telephone,video or face to face consultation.
The safety of our patients remains a key priority, so we will continue to do what is necessary to achieve the right balance between keeping you away from the surgery and asking you to attend. Limiting face-to-face contact whenever possible is an important part of reducing the numbers attending the surgery and thereby reducing risk of virus transmission and keeping the surgery as safe as possible for those who need to attend.
If you need an appointment, please ring us on or book online. Please download the My GP to order repeat prescriptions, book appointments and check your symptoms.
You can also call NHS 111 or go online to seek advice https://111.nhs.uk/.
Our opening hours are Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm.
If you are waiting for a check-up, please be assured we will be in touch.
Please continue to work with us so that together we can all stay safe.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
