Support Your Surgery
How Can You Support Your Surgery?
"GPs and their teams have faced an extremely challenging time during the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions have meant that face-to-face contact with patients has been limited in order to keep practice staff and patients safe.
The Support Your Surgery campaign provides GP practices with the tools to both manage expectations and to provide patients with the reality of issues facing general practice.
Alongside this, we have launched a petition calling on the UK Government to provide the urgent resourcing needed to increase the number of GPs in England." - British Medical Association, BMA
Suspicious Patient Access Emails
There have been reports from both Patient Access users and people who have never registered for the service, that they have received Covid passport emails purporting to be from Patient Access. Patient Access has shared the following guidance:
"We advise users of Patient Access to check the name and email address of the sender, all emails from Patient Access will come via an email address that ends in @patientaccess.com. we advise users never to click on any log-in links that you receive via email but to visit the site via the address bar of your browser instead so that you know you are on the genuine Patient Access log-in page. You can find more information and guifance on our information security page here."
Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination
Patients who have had both Covid-19 vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their Covid-19 vaccination status via the NHS App or call 119.
Please use one of these options as we are unable to provide proof of vaccination ourselves.
