SPECIAL MEASURES

Please note that as a temporary measure we have turned off the on-line appointment booking facility. This is so all patients can be screened in line with current NHSE guidelines before booking an appointment.

In line with these guidelines, the practice now operates a telephone triage system for most appointments but face to face appointments are available - please see notice below.     

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY UNLESS ASKED TO DO SO BY A CLINICIAN OR YOU HAVE A BOOKED FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT

Thank you 


Coronovirus Vaccination Programme

The latest information on the COVID-19 vaccination programme is online on the Essex Covid-19 vaccination website. Local updates can also be found here.  

We advise checking there first if you have questions about the safety or effectiveness of COVID vaccines, or your priority to receive the vaccination. 


NHS COVID PASS

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 through the NHS COVID Pass service 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.
