Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status
Patients can access their COVID-19 vaccination status though the NHS App. Patients are being advised by Gov.uk that they do not need to contact their GP surgery about their COVID-19 vaccination status.   

Currently, the Booster is not required for your COVID passport (it is your primary doses) which define your COVID passport.   Vaccination information is available on the NHS App to view.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Caring for a parent

    Watch this video on: caring for a parent at home

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
