We are receiving a high volume of calls regarding the National Data Opt Out after it was featured in the media last week. If you have any queries or would like to know more about this, please visit:
Covid Vaccine Status
The Government has announced that from 17th May 2021, people will be able to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccine status for travelling purposes by accessing the NHS app, or by calling 119.
Do not contact the GP Surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 status.
We are aware that there are issues with the telephone lines and patients having long waits to get through to Reception. We are working to get the telephone system updated, but these things take time. Please bear with us.
When you are invited you will receive a text from NHS-Noreply or a letter with a unique booking code and web link.
All Patients will be invited for their vaccine when they are eligible. Please be patient, you will be contacted when you are eligible.
Information is available on the government website
Suffolk and North East Essex System have launched a Covid-19 Vaccine website which gives a range of information about the vaccination roll out, links to local networks and organisations and a detailed set of FAQs. There is also information about the vaccination centres and sites across Suffolk and North East Essex with local case studies and sites, including maps highlighting their location.
