We still need everyone to wear a face mask in our building.
Please wear your face mask, sanitise your hands and keep social distancing so we can keep all staff and patients safe.
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
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID 19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID 19 vaccination status.
Please note the following link to the GOV.UK website on Demonstrating your COVID 19 vaccination status when travelling abroad which explains the following:
How to access your COVID 19 vaccination status
Through the NHS App
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 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.
By calling 119
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 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 working days to reach you.
The letter will be sent automatically to the address registered with your GP. The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you. If you’ve recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.
