You may have seen on the news that from Monday 17th May, doors at GP practices are ‘re-opening’. As you will know Sutton Valence Group Practice has been open throughout the pandemic, offering patients telephone, video and face to face consultations for those who need them. This was in-line with national requirements to keep patients safe, whilst COVID infection rates were high and before the vaccination was widespread.
GP practices are now being encouraged to offer patients a choice of whether they would like a remote or face to face consultation. However, before we have more people coming into the surgery to see us in person, we need a bit of time to put in place measures to keep everyone safe. As we wait for further national guidance on doing that, we ask that patients continue to contact us by phone as you have been doing. We are facing unprecedented demands for our services and will need to continue to adjust how we use our clinicians’ time to best support our patients- particularly those who need us the most. Whilst still maintaining social distancing to ensure we keep both patients and staff safe.
We will keep you updated as soon as we are clear about how we can re-open our reception areas safely.
Thank you for your continued support.
Dr Will Mangar and Dr Chris Cranston
Are you 35 and over ? We have sent you an SMS to book a Covid vaccination at Glebe Medical Centre Harrietsham.
If you haven't received it, please check we have the right mobile number on record for you and if you haven't got a mobile please call and we will book the appointment for you.
Thank you

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Using the NHS App

To use the NHS App, you must be:

If you’re aged 13 to 15, you’ll need to contact your GP surgery to request access to GP online services before you can use the app.

Find out more about the NHS App

We recommend that you register with the NHS App:

  • before booking your international travel
  • at least 2 weeks before your departure date and once you’ve had a full course of vaccinations, which is currently 2 doses of an approved vaccine

Protecting your data

Your COVID-19 vaccination status is held securely within the NHS App, and can only be accessed via the NHS login service.

The app only shows your COVID-19 vaccination status in the form of your vaccination record.

In the future, the app will also show your COVID-19 test results.
