National blood bottle shortage
November 2021 - The national picture with regards to blood bottle shortage is easing but supplies remain constrained. Surgeries are getting limited deliveries of bottles. We hope we will be back to normal in the next week or so.
Stockwood Staff Changes
We are pleased to announce that Dr Daniel Azimzadeh joined the practice in September as a new Partner. We are sure you will give him a warm welcome. Both Dr Sarah Stenner and Dr Vanessa Hayter are on maternity leave and we will be moving some patients who are registered with Dr Stenner and Dr Hayter to be registered with Dr Azimzadeh. If you are not registered with the doctor of your choice, we can change this to meet your preference.
From 22 September 2021 until 19 January 2022 there will be 4 medical students at the Practice. They will be sitting in on some GP consultations. They will 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.
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:
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, and you have had 2 vaccines, 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 and have 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.

The annual 2021 GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to over two million people across the UK.
