Welcome to Stockwood Medical Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Stockwood Staff Changes
Medical Students - From 25 January there will be a number of medical students sitting in on some GP consultations. They will sit in and observe the consultation and may ask questions. This is to aid learning as they will soon qualify as doctors.
If you attend the practice and refuse to wear a mask without a valid exemption reason you may not be allowed access. The clinician who is due to see you has the right to ask you to rearrange your appointment.
Why GPs need to work differently
From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel and domestic venues. Vaccine status is available from:
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service. If you cannot access the online services, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future. 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.

Some patients registered with Stockwood will soon be invited to take part in a national survey about their experiences. Visit www.gp-patient.co.uk to find out more.
