 How to demonstrate your Covid-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad.

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 

  • 119 - by requesting a paper letter

You will need to register to use the online services, if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.

If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 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. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.

When you're planning your travel, you should check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is enough time to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status before you are due to travel.

Health Screening

NHS Health Screening Programmes

There are a number of national health service screening programmes e.g. 

  • Breast screening
  • Cervical screening
  • Bowel screening

Bowel Screening

 Bowel cancer screening is offered every 2 years to men and women aged 60 to 74.

People older than this can ask for a screening kit every 2 years by calling the Freephone number 0800 707 60 60.

People eligible for bowel cancer screening get an invitation letter, along with an information leaflet explaining screening and its possible benefits and risks.About a week later, the programme sends a test kit with instructions on how to use it at home. Results are sent out 2 weeks after the laboratory receives the completed kit.
