Welcome to Blyths Meadow Surgery
Wearing of Face Masks after the 19th July 2021: - the surgery has taken the decision to ask patients to wear face masks when visiting the surgery for anything, unless you are exempt.
This will ensure our staff and other services users remain protected against the ever changing COVID situation and we can remain open as a surgery.
We thank you in advance for your co-operation.
Demonstrating your COVID vaccine status: 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:
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.
Non Attendance of Appointments
The practice has to deal with missed appointment every week due to patients not giving us notice that they would not be attending. These "did not attends" (DNAs) are a waste of appointments that could be given to other patients.
Due to the increasing pressures faced by the practice this is not something that we can allow to continue. We will be monitoring those patients that do not attend on a regular basis. If you miss 3 appointments in a 12 month period, without a valid reason, you may be removed from the practice list and asked to register elsewhere.
