JCVI recommending booster vaccinations for all adults
The NHS is awaiting national guidance that lets us extend the availability of COVID-19 booster jabs to all adults, a minimum of three months after receiving their second jabs. Thank you for your patience while we put this in place. For the time being, please only come for your booster jab if you are over the age of 40, and it has been more than six months since you had your second jab. If this does not apply to you, then an announcement will be made when you can get your booster. Read more

COVID NHS GUIDANCE:

15th Dec 2021: Move back to GP phone triage

Given the rapid increase in COVID cases, the Drs have taken the decision that patients will be offered a phone consultation first. If the patient then needs to be seen Face-to-Face, the Dr will invite the patient in, typically at the end of their clinic.

10th Dec 2021: Oversees COVID Vaccinations

Anyone who lives in England who has had 1 or more of their covid vaccines administered overseas can now have their vaccinations verified by the NHS. This will generate an NHS Covid Pass for domestic use and international travel.  We cannot respond to any queries regarding this as we are unable to make/cancel appointments or verify these documents ourselves. Guidance can be found on the links below.  If you have any trouble/queries you can call 119.

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status - Information Update from the UK Government:

i) 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. It is recommended that you register with the app before booking international travel.

ii) If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) 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.

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
