Covid-19 vaccination status

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 

  • 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 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.

 

Online Services

What is Patient Online?

Patient Online gives patients the option to make appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view their GPs’ medical record online, using their computer, tablet or smartphone. It complements the existing ways patients access appointments, prescriptions and their records.

Online services will be offered in addition to the traditional telephone and face-to-face means of interacting with a GP practice. Patients will be able to choose the route they prefer.

Patients appreciate the ease and convenience and record access helps them to be better informed about their health and better able to self-manage long term conditions.

The GMS and PMS contracts required practices to promote and offer online access to the coded data in their health record and in 2016/17 there are non-contractual changes that call for practice to provide patients with online access to clinical correspondence such as discharge summaries, outpatient appointment letters, and referral letters.

Patient information leaflet ‘It’s your choice’

Please print off and complete the patient application form. Bring the form into the surgery with 2 patient identifiable documents, e.g. driving licence, passport, utility bill so that the surgery can issue you with your unique PIN number.
