A Letter to our Patients

As you will be aware, the NHS is currently dealing with the Coronavirus Pandemic which has drastically altered how we see patients. A concern with these new arrangements is that patients who would normally be attending to discuss symptoms are now staying away in order to allow us to focus on Pandemic related healthcare.

Whilst we understand and are grateful for this, we would still encourage you to contact the surgery to discuss any new medical problems not related to the coronavirus illness. We can usually make an assessment over the telephone as to whether we can safely delay further assessments or investigations and are happy to give advice. Alternatively, it may be prudent to see you in person, in which case, strict infection control measures are in place in the surgery to protect both staff and patients. The aim of this is to identify and treat any more serious illnesses in a timely fashion rather than allow problems to worsen before the end of the social distancing period.

Further good advice about symptoms is available through the NHS Website, www.nhs.uk and you can also find relevant help, here, on our website.

Yours sincerely

GP Partners

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine.

Vaccine status will be available from:

    • the NHS App which you can download from app stores
    • the NHS website
    • 119 – by requesting a paper letter

You will need to register to use the online services, if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.

If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.

When you’re planning your travel, you should check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is enough time to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status before you are due to travel.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

    • A HIGH temperature
    • A NEW continuous cough

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

    • YOU feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
    • YOUR condition gets worse
    • YOUR symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
