Please note, these vaccinations are not available for children under age 18.

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.

We are trying to identify & support as many Carers as we can.

Particularly those people who may be looking after a member of their family or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks, don’t really regard themselves as a Carer and are undertaking this vital activity without help or support.

If you are caring for someone, we really would like you to let us know, so that we can ensure you receive all the support and information we can give, on topics such as benefit entitlement, access to respite care or maybe simply being there to provide a kindly ear when things get too much.

If you are a Carer, please ask our Receptionist for a Carer’s Identification Form.

Carers Packs are also available in the noticeboard which is in the surgery entrance hall.

Please complete this form and hand it to our Receptionist who will give you a Carers pack.

Please download a copy of the North Staffs Carers Association Referral Form below. Please complete and email or post. The surgery will be happy to fax this for you as well.
