Vaccination status for travel

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:

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores
  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these 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 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 website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing Prescriptions

Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service. 

 Improved access

Improving Access to General Practice


From Monday 1 October 2018, you will be able to book an appointment to see a GP in the evenings or weekends at one of the new Primary Care Hubs within Healthy Living Centres across Medway. 


Primary Care Hubs are funded by Medway Clinical Commissioning Group ( as part of the national NHS Improving Access to General Practice Programme. The service has been developed to improve the availability of services you would normally get from your GP practice. 


You must book an appointment to be seen at a hub - appointments need to be booked in the same way you would book usually, with your own GP receptionist team. 


This service is provided by Medway Practices Alliance (MPA), a federation of Medway GP practices, created to enhance the delivery of healthcare services to over 300,000 patients in Medway. 


You must have booked an appointment through your GP surgery as walk-in appointments are not available.
