Provision of certificates or evidence of your COVID vaccination status

We are unable to issue certificates of COVID vaccination status at the practice.

Please see the Government website for further information:


Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app from 17th May 2021, which is also valuable for accessing your health record and ordering repeat prescriptions, and in some of the other apps that provide you with Patient online services. 

The NHSapp can be downloaded from:

iPhone/iOS https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277

Android https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline

If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an "NHS login" as per https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-log-in/

If you already have access/login details for patient online services, for example "Patient Access", you may use this.

Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17th May 2021) 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.  The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or longer if postal services are affected. Please take account of this when making your plans.
