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 Medical Centre - Masks in Healthcare Settings

The Government has made the decision to ease many restrictions from 19 July 2021.  Please note that Public Health England has confirmed the easing of restrictions does not change the infection control requirements in healthcare settings.

From 19 July you will still be required to wear a mask, use hand sanitiser, maintain social distancing and only enter the building only where necessary eg. for an appointment or to drop off a sample.  The surgery is not the same as public transport, a restaurant or the supermarket – our visitors are unwell, vulnerable and may not be be vaccinated due to medical reasons.

Hands Face SpaceWe have experienced absence due to staff having Covid or close contact outside of work with someone who has Covid. This hugely affects our ability to answer the phone and let you in for your appointment.  The continuing of appropriate infection control procedures protects our patients and their health and protects our staff to help you – without our staff we cannot deliver an effective, functioning service to you.

Consultations will continue to be offered by telephone / video and then followed up face to face where clinically appropriate – we are seeing many more people face to face in follow ups. Our nurses and doctors have seen patients face to face for vital clinical procedures and specialist contraceptive procedures throughout the pandemic. It is worth noting that we are consulting with higher numbers of patients than we ever did before the pandemic, whilst also having played a big part in the vaccination programme delivery. Our doors are have always been open – just in a different way.

We hope you will understand why we need to continue with these measures and keep the practice as safe for everyone as we can. We have all come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid, let’s continue to stay safe together.

IMPORTANT NOTE

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.



Covid Passport

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.
