IMPORTANT CHANGES TO OUR SERVICE
To keep you and our staff safe during the Coronavirus pandemic all appointments will now be telephone triage consultations after which the doctor or nurse will make arrangements for a face to face appointment if needed.
IMPORTANT COVID-19 PRACTICE UPDATE - If you are attending the practice for an appointment you still need to wear a face mask or face covering which covers your nose and mouth. This is for your protection and to help protect our staff. Thank you for your support in helping to stop the spread of the virus Suitable face covering
Proof of COVID vaccination status for children aged 12-15
Children in England aged 12-15 year old who have had a full course of COVID-19 vaccination are eligible for an NHS COVID Pass letter for travel which includes an internationally recognised 2D barcode. The letter service can be accessed by calling 119 or via NHS.uk. It can take up to 7 working days to receive a COVID Pass letter.
You do not need to contact your GP to access the NHS App.
Do not contact the GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
COVID PASS NAME NOT MATCHING PASSPORT
We are being asked by patients to change their name on their GP records to match their passport. This is because usually they have changed their name but only informed either the passport office or the surgery but not both. We can do this on your GP records, but the automatic update this triggers to the central NHS database that links to your Covid Pass may take a few days. This is out of our control.
The Covid Pass does not show your middle name. We are therefore unable to add middle names to your Covid Pass. You need to take this up with the consulate or embassy of the country you are travelling to.
You need to send us a clear photo of your passport showing the exact name and we will match this. We need to see this before we can make the change, and this will be stored on your records as proof of your request. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. It will take us 3-4 days to action this.
You must understand that for a while your GP records will be out of sync with Hospital records and prescriptions, until the automatic links are updated externally. We will only change your records back when you change your name on your passport, and you will need email the photo of your new passport once you have updated this. What we are effectively doing is accepting your current passport as your legal name and your medical records will show this.
We will try to do this within a couple of days of asking, but this cannot take precedence over urgent medical tasks.
