    How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status


    You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVI D-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

    If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call. the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) 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. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

    Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

    Information on the Coronavirus

    Patients must wear a mask at all times when in the building.
    ‘We will be carrying out more appointments over the telephone and by video during the Covid pandemic but GP’s may also ask patients to come in to be examined if deemed necessary. Most nurse routine appointments or annual reviews will be slowly re-introduced over the next few weeks. If you are asked to come to the surgery we would ask that you wear a mask or face covering. When you arrive you will find that our doors are locked; please ring the video doorbell and a receptionist will ask you for your details and let you into the building. Following the current Government advisory we have been advised to maintain a 2m distance from one another, so will find that there are fewer chairs spaced out in the waiting room to allow for this. Thank you all for your patience and understanding at this time. ’

Opt Out of Data Sharing Information

Opt Out of Data Sharing Information

There has recently been a lot of discussion about patient data being shared outside the NHS. We would like to reassure patients that no identifiable data will leave their GP practices.

NHS Digital has consulted with patient and privacy groups, clinicians, and technology experts, as well as with the British Medical Association (BMA), Royal College of GPs (RCGP), the National Data Guardian (NDG) and multiple other organisations and communities across the health and care system.

Any data which directly identifies an individual will be pseudonymised and then encrypted before it leaves a GP practice. Data will only be shared with organisations who have a legal basis and meet strict criteria to use it for local, regional and national planning, policy development, commissioning, public health and research purposes.

If a patient does not want identifiable data to be shared outside their GP Practice except for their own care they can opt out at any time, by requesting that their GP practice record this preference, known as a Type 1 opt out form: https://nhs-prod.global.ssl.fastly.net/binaries/content/assets/website-assets/data-and-information/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-planning-and-research/type-1-opt-out-form.docx, or by registering their opt-out through the National Data Opt Out service on nhs.uk, or both.
