How to Confirm your Covid-19 Vaccination Status for Travel


 Neston Surgery


 


Dear Patient,


 


Throughout the pandemic, we have strived to make Neston Surgery as safe as possible for our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward, and from the 19th of July, nothing will change at the Surgery. Patients will still need to wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser when attending the Surgery and our patient-facing staff will continue to wear PPE.


 


We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when the patients come to us they may be sick and vulnerable, and some cannot receive the Covid vaccine due to medical reasons, so we feel it would be wrong to not continue with these small precautions that can help to protect the patients and staff.


 


Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


 


Dr Awan and Partners


 


Please click on the link below regarding recent Covid-19 AZ Vaccine Concerns


https://www.cheshireccg.nhs.uk/news/news-stories/reports-of-very-rare-blood-clots/


Despite recent media coverage outlining a national supply issue, everyone in Cheshire West who has already had their first dose COVID vaccine will be offered their second dose within 12 weeks. Available vaccine supply is being prioritised for this purpose.


Most vaccination services in Cheshire West started vaccinating patients in early January and it has been determined nationally that second doses should be offered as close to week eleven as possible, following first dose.


Clinics are carefully planned around confirmed vaccination delivery dates in order to minimise disruption to patients. When confirmation of the delivery date for second dose vaccines has been received your GP practice will contact you to arrange your second dose appointment.


https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/



Once we have a delivery we will contact the patients, please avoid coming to the surgery to book your appointment as we have Covid-19 measures in place. The notification of delivery can be at very short notice and the Surgery Staff are working extremely hard to ensure all clinics are fully booked.


Depending on which vaccine we receive will determine which site it will be delivered from and we will informed you at the time of booking.


We would like to thank you for your continued support during this time.


We know that many people are eager to be vaccinated as soon as possible. We also understand that some patients will be concerned that they are not in the first groups for vaccination but may feel their circumstances or condition means they should be.

The decision about which order people are vaccinated in is set nationally by the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Your local GP practice or individual GP is not allowed to vary from that priority order and is unable to make exceptions in individual cases. Your medical consultant or local counsellors are also unable to agree a variation from the national rules.

GP practices are working together to ensure they can vaccinate patients as quickly as possible and they appreciate your support in this regard and your understanding as they progress through the groups for vaccinations as quickly as possible.

Latest information from the Surgery

Covid19 Antibody test

As part of the national response to COVID-19, antibody testing is now available in Neston Surgery for some patients.

Patients who are already having blood taken as part of other tests (either in hospital or in

their GP practice) may be asked whether they would like an antibody test. The test is

completely voluntary but your test results will be used for statistical purposes. Although any information used will be anonymous

It’s important to note that this is not a test for immunity, there is no strong evidence yet to

suggest that those who have had the virus develop long-lasting immunity which would

prevent them from getting the virus again you should continue to socially distance and follow Government guidelines. Antibody testing at this stage is useful primarily to improve our understanding about the spread of the virus.

For the latest information about the antibody tests, please go to:

Antibody test FAQs

During this unprecedented time information sharing is critical to the response to COVID-19. Many organisations, including GPs, are being asked to share information with different organisations and adapt their working practices to support this response and deliver care to their patients. While these are unusual times we must ensure that personal data continues to be utilised in a lawful manner.
