Patients vaccinated overseas From 9 December, the public is now able to book a face to face appointment at selected sites across the country using this link to have their overseas vaccination records validated and recorded. Ensuring overseas vaccinations are recorded in NIMS will enable patients to be invited for any subsequent doses for which they are eligible and will also help patients access the NHS COVID Pass. Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you've had abroad - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
The launch of this service will supplement the Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS) to ‘Tell the NHS about coronavirus vaccinations abroad’ and resolve issues of missing records into the National Immunisation Management System (NIMS). Appointments are booked and managed through the National Booking Service on the NHS website or by calling 119.
The new service will capture evidence of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in countries outside of England and have these recorded in NIMS. To be eligible to use the service people must:
o have received one of the four MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) approved vaccine types for use in England: AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) / Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) / Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) / or Moderna (Spikevax)
o be aged 18 or over
o have an NHS number
o be able to attend the face to face appointment with photographic ID (Passport or UK Driving Licence) and evidence of their vaccination record. The documentation required for the appointment is detailed in the NBS booking page and in the Overseas Service Standard Operating Procedure available on FutureNHS here.
The service is only currently available in a selected number of vaccination centres.
The public will be able to find information through the National Booking Service on the NHS website, or by calling 119. Please signpost any relevant patients to more information on this service at this link.

Important Update - All consultations are now telephone consultations, if the Doctor feels you need to be seen they will book you a face to face appointment.
We are pleased to announce that most routine blood-samples can now be taken at the practice or one of our Network practices, rather than at the hospital.

Existing arrangements are still in place to support house-bound patients.
COVID 19 Update - In order to reduce the risk to patients and staff we will be changing the way the surgery operates for the foreseeable future.
