Covid Passes and Recovery Letters

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-pass/get-your-covid-pass-letter/

 Anybody needing to demonstrate your COVID 19 status, will need to get a NHS COVID Pass letter. This is not a document which the surgery can provide. Please call 119 and option 3 or https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-covid-pass to apply online.

We do not provide covid recovery letters for travel. We can provide a copy of your positive result if necessary. 

Self Certification for Sick Certificates

The government have made temporary changes to the issuing of ‘fit notes’ in the hope that it will help reduce the burden on GPs.

When employees go off sick on or after 10th December, employers cannot ask for a sick note from a GP until the employee has been off for 28 days. This is starkly different to the usual 7 days. This is currently set to end with sickness needing to start before or on the 26th January, but an end date is not stated on gov.uk and it has been said that this period could be extended.

Peer Support Groups

 

We would like to offer you this online Peer support group coordinated by our social prescriber. We will be inviting patients from the local community to join. It will be a friendly and open platform to discuss all anxieties, concerns and an opportunity to talk to other people. It can be utilised as a social group as it is understood that isolation has caused feelings of loneliness for those of all ages.

What we will talk about is up to you! This will be a safe space and what we discuss will be kept confidential.

The session will be held through zoom and run for approximately 1.5 hours.

During the session you will have a chance to ask questions and learn how to:

  • Recognising symptoms of anxiety, low mood and stress and what affects our moods
  • Tips for keeping well during difficult times such as the pandemic
  • Brief relaxation practice
  • Suggestions of resources for further support
