COVID19 Passport/Certificates – Proof of COVID19 vaccinations and booster

We are asking for all our patients from 18 years and above to ensure they are vaccinated and/or have their boosters. Please see the latest guidance here click hear

With the new guidance, in certain circumstances, you are required to show proof that you have had your COVID19 vaccines and/or booster. We are unable to issue this certificate at the practice and we kindly ask that you do not call or email us with queries relating to this.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app

For more information and to download the NHS app click hear
If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an “NHS login” click hear

If you have access/ login details for patient online services through the surgery, for example “Patient Access”, you may use this.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 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.  The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or more if postal services are affected.  Please take account of this when making your plans.
