Book or manage your COVID-19 vaccination

COVID-19 vaccination pop-up and walk-in clinics

Please do not contact the surgery to inquire about the COVID-19 vaccination programme, or to request the vaccination before you have been contacted to book. We will contact patients as the programme is rolled out, in accordance with government guidelines.

Patients contacting to inquire about their vaccination may disrupt the surgery contacting those who are eligable, and may result in a delay of bookings.

Please speak to our reception team if you would like to confirm we have the correct contact details for you.

If you have been invited to book your Coronavirus Vaccination by the surgery or the NHS, you can do so here. If you have been invited by the surgery, you may recieve a link via text to book at accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk. You will only be able to book if you meet the criteria listed.

COVID-19 Vaccination Status (NHS COVID Pass)

From 17th 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, or by requesting a letter from this site.

The NHS App requires an NHS Login to access, and may need to submit photo ID to verify your identity. More information about NHS Login can be found here. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

Please see NHS App Help & Support and the NHS Login Help Centre if you are having any issues with using the NHS App or NHS Login.

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.

The 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.

More information about how to access your COVID-19 vaccination status can be found at gov.uk and nhs.uk.

It is concerning that patients who might have symptoms that could be cancer, or changes unusual for them, are not seeking help from their GP during the pandemic.
