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.

Patients on long term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:

  • In person/post – forward your repeat slip to the surgery having carefully marked the items required. Please enclose a SAE if you want us to post it back to you.
  • Online – order via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to register for this service; click here for more information.
  • Local pharmacy collection/delivery service - please call into your preferred pharmacy with your right hand side of your prescription to set up this service. You will need to give the pharmacy            7 days’ notice for ordering and receiving prescriptions.

You will need to leave 2 working days for the surgery to process the prescription. So if you order at the weekend or in the evening it won't be actioned until the first working day, so for example:

Order on a Saturday/Sunday it will be processed on a Monday and ready for collection from the surgery on Wednesday after 4pm.

Order on a Thursday night it will be processed on a Friday and ready for collection from the surgery on Tuesday after 4pm.
