COVID Passports

In the last few weeks, we have seen an increase in queries from our patients regarding vaccine passports, which we are unable to help with. Please do not contact us about this.

If you have been vaccinated in England, Wales or Scotland, your vaccine passport is available via the NHS COVID pass. We understand there is a national issue with some vaccinations not showing up in the app. There is a solution being put in place to resolve this - from next week (2 August), please call 119 if you are affected and they will be able to help you.

If you were vaccinated outside of England, Wales or Scotland, there is currently no way to access a vaccine passport via the NHS COVID pass. The government have not yet published any details about when this will be possible. Please do not call us about this as we will be unable to help.  

Thank you.

Named & Accountable GP

As part of our NHS Contract we have to provide each patient with a "Named and Accountable GP".  In fact we have been doing this for a long time, with each patient having a "usual GP" noted on our clinical system.  Each patient must be notified of their Named GP.

Having a Named GP does not mean that you can only see that doctor when you come to the surgery.  You can continue to see any of the doctors, as you do already.

In most cases your Named GP will be the doctor you most often see at the surgery and the one who knows you best.  This doctor will also be the one who receives any hospital correspondence about your care and who handles your repeat prescription requests.  We operate a "buddy" system to cover this work when your doctor is absent.

New patients are informed of their Named GP at the point of registration.  We also provide this information on the right hand side of all prescriptions.
