Coronavirus

We are seeing patients face to face

We would like to reassure our patients that the surgery remains open but the way services are accessed has been changed, following advice from the Department of Health in view of the Coronavirus pandemic.

If you have any health concerns we would want you to contact the surgery as you normally would.

Appointments with Doctors and Nurses are still available, but for the majority of patients this may be initially by telephone, followed by a face to face consultation if needed.

This is to protect both staff and patients but in particular highly vulnerable patients who still need to be seen in surgery.

We would hope that as lockdown restrictions are eased a more normal service can be resumed but thank all our patients for their understanding with this.

NHS App for COVID Vaccination Status

HOW TO ACCESS YOUR COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status allows you to show others that you've had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine when travelling abroad to some countries or territories. A full course is currently 2 doses of any approved vaccine. 

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App.  You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-10 baccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel. 

If you do not have access to a smartphone or tablet and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID018 vaccination status, 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. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you. 

We ask that you do not contact us about your vaccination status as we cannot provide letters showing this information.
