How to access your COVID-19 Vaccination status
You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination 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 and know that the country you are travelling to required COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from May 17) 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.
Please do not contact us to provide documentation regarding your vaccine status, the above methods are the only official ways to verify your vaccination status.

Recording overseas vaccinations in the National Booking Service
Eligible patients can now book a face-to-face appointment via the National Booking system, www.nhs.uk at a selected vaccination centre to show evidence of MHRA-approved COVID-19 vaccinations administered abroad and have them recorded in the National Immunisation Management System (NIMS).
Changes made to our practice due to COVID-19
The reception door will remain locked, please speak to the receptionists via the designated window/hatch, if you have a face to face appointment the receptionist will take your temperature and let you into the waiting room. Please be patient as reception staff are also answering telephone queries.
All GP appointments will be by telephone consultation first, if after the clinician has spoken to you, needs to see you, you will be given a face to face appointment (all other appointments can be booked face to face first).
- It is practice policy that if you are attending a face to face appointment or coming into the surgery for any reason, you will be required to wear a face mask or covering.
If you are exempt or you refuse to wear a face mask or covering, you may be required to wait outside until the clinician is ready to see you and your appointments will be booked at such times that will minimise contact with other patients in the surgery.
You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival at the Practice.
All chairs in the waiting room are wiped with sanitising wipes once the chair has been vacated.
