Noticeboard

We are still open and here for you. We are continuing to provide services as we have been doing throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please do not call your GP surgery about vaccines or boosters.  You can find more information about where to get your vaccine and booster at www.northcentrallondonccg.nhs.uk/my-health/covid-19/walk-in-vaccination-clinics, or you can call 119. 

If you would like advice on minor illnesses, you can visit your local pharmacy which can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines, or go online to seek NHS advice at www.nhs.uk.

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.
