Covid Vaccination Passport Certificate
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate we will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.
The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. They are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
Changes to Access as a result of COVID-19.
The practice remains open for all essential primary care problems but on the advice of Health Protection Scotland we have put in place a process whereby everyone is screened by telephone prior to being seen.
All patients will still have access to the care they require.
We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
Please telephone 01463 782214 if you need/require attention and we will call you back.
We may want to do a video consultation as part of your assessment.
This is done by NHS nearme.
