PLEASE WEAR FACE COVERINGS. COVID-19 PROTECTIONS ARE STILL IN PLACE IN THIS SURGERY.
In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings. Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so, unless exempt, is key to preventing spread of infection.
CONTINUE TO RESPECT (2M) SOCIAL DISTANCING TEST AND ISOLATE IF YOU HAVE ANY SYMPTOMS.
If you have symptoms you must get at PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test as soon as possible and before visiting your GP. Rapid lateral flow tests should not be used to confirm infection. It’s vital that you and anyone in your household isolate until you receive your test result, and for 10 days thereafter if the result is positive.
WASH AND SANITISE HANDS REGULARLY
Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID 19 Vaccination Status
The Government has announced that from 17th May 2021, people will be able to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccine status for travelling purposes by accessing the Patient Access or NHS app, or by calling 119.
Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status as GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
Please see Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad at GOV.UK for further information.
Please note if you do call the NHS helpline (on 119) please 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; the letter may take up to 5 days to reach you.
Appointments for those in the Covid 19 Priority Groups can be booked by contacting your GP, through the NHS national booking system or by calling 119 for an appointment at a larger vaccination site or pharmacy.
