What you need to do to get a certificate of vaccination for international travel.

Overview

A COVID -19 vaccination certificate allows you to prove that you have had a full course of the vaccine.

Check entry requirements such as COVID-19 tests and isolation for countries that you intend to visit (on GOV.UK).

You will still need to follow other rules when travelling, such as pre-departure testing.

How to request a certificate if required for urgent travel

Request a certificate only if:

  • you have had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine (you should wait 5 days after your second dose before requesting it)
  • you urgently need to travel to a country which requires vaccine certification
  • you are not able to either quarantine or provide tests to meet country entry requirements

Call 0300 303 5667 to request a vaccination certificate for essential international travel.

It can take up to 10 working days for a certificate to arrive. No requests can be fast tracked and certificates cannot be collected.

You can call 7 days a week between 9am and 5pm.

Calls from landlines are typically charged between 2p and 10p per minute. Calls from mobiles typically cost between 10p and 40p per minute. Calls from landlines and mobiles are included in free call packages.

We are working on a digital option for Welsh citizens to show their vaccination status. This will be available shortly.

Do not request a vaccination certificate from your GP or vaccination centre. They cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

If you have not been fully vaccinated

If you haven’t completed your vaccine course, please continue to follow existing entry requirements. Most countries will accept either testing or quarantine as alternatives to vaccination certification.

You need to carefully research the requirements of your destination country before travelling.

Further details on entry requirements can be found on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages and on the websites of your destination country.

See travel advice for British people travelling abroad during the pandemic.

Children

Children cannot get COVID-19 vaccination status, as they are not currently being vaccinated.

If you’re travelling abroad you may need to show proof of a COVID-19 test.

More Information available on the gov.wales website.

SHARING PATIENTS DATA - PLEASE READ

Following the announcement by NHS Digital about the changes being introduced in England to the way that GP-held patient records are being collected and held centrally, and the subsequent media attention it has received, this written statement provides details about what is happening in terms of sharing health records in Wales. 

To be very clear, the proposal reported in the media to collect data from GPs applies only in England. NHS Digital does not have any authority or responsibility in Wales. However, Welsh residents who are or have previously been registered with GPs in England will need to opt out by 23 June if they do not want their data to be included.  More information about England’s approach to General Practice Data for Planning and Research can be found here: https://digital.nhs.uk/data-and-information/data-collections-and-data-sets/data-collections/general-practice-data-for-planning-and-research#top

 Coronavirus cases are increasing on a daily basis.

Patients will understand that Padarn Surgery will have temporary

measures in place to reduce the risk to patients and staff.

For Routine Appointments / Contact with the surgery

First contact with the GP surgery should be made by telephone.  Your enquiry will initially be taken by an experienced Receptionist who will triage your enquiry.  The receptionist will then determine the correct NHS professional to deal with your enquiry.  This may be a GP, Practice Nurse, Physiotherapist, Medical secretary or a member of our Administration team.

A telephone or video appointment will then be made with the most appropriate professional.  They will contact you to determine whether the issue can be dealt with remotely or whether a face to face appointment is required.

econsult - is for non urgent medical advice you can use this 24/7.  You will receive a reply by the end of the next working day.  

For Patient Safety - If you have a Mental Health Issue / Concern Please Do Not Use e Consult - Ring the surgery on 01970 624545.  

E-consult

If you need to drop off your prescription, please use the post box located on the front of the main entrance.  If you usually collect your prescription from Padarn Surgery, we would ask patients to consider providing a stamped self-addressed envelope in order to reduce the need to attend.

We are reviewing all our routine clinics and non-essential services in order to minimise the spread of Coronavirus.

Your first port of call if you are experiencing symptoms is the online NHS Wales symptom checker www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk/COVID19 or by calling 111.

University information 

The three town practices offer the e-Consult facility.

eConsult enables NHS based GP practices to offer online consultations to their patients. This allows patients to submit their symptoms or requests to their own GP electronically and offers around the clock NHS self-help information, signposting to services, and a symptom checker.

eConsult is the most widely used digital triage tool in NHS primary care, built by NHS GPs for NHS patients, designed to enhance patient access, improve practice efficiencies and signpost patients to the right place at the right time for their care.

The practices have taken the difficult decision to suspend all routine appointments and are asking all patients to pre-book appointments if required. Patients are asked to ring the practice in the first instance and will be signposted to the most appropriate treatment. 

The practice will still be offering clinical need appointments and telephone triage. Patients will be asked to outside when they arrive for their appointment and not in the practice waiting room. Patients will be asked to wear a mask when entering the building to see a clinician and the clinician will also be wearing a mask during your appointment. 

If you are not able to send an email or have not signed up for My Health Online, prescription requests will need to be left in the prescription box outside, this can found to right hand side of the building at the rear entrance door.
