CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

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.

Urgent advice: 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.

To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on your local GP practice during this busy time, appointments will be carried out over the phone through e-consultation or video consultation unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.

Demonstrating Vaccination Status For Travel.

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 (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 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.

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

Covid Vaccinations

Please DO NOT ring the surgery enquiring about the vaccine, these calls are blocking our telephone lines for those people who need to speak to us urgently.

We are currently inviting patients who are eligible in Cohort 6 - aged 16 to 64 with an underlying health condition.

Please be aware there are thousands of patients in this group and we will be in touch with you as soon as our vaccine supply allows.

If you have received a letter from the Government regarding booking into one of the Vaccine Hubs, in Sheffield for example, it is your choice whether to book in with the hub or wait and be booked in with us, if you would prefer to book in with us you DO NOT need to let us know our searches will pick you up and you will be called in due course.
