Firstly, we do encourage everyone to try and get theirs as soon as possible BUT, please make sure you are eligible before trying to book or walk-in.

Some of our local Primary Care services are changing - and here at Abbottswood Medical Centre, we want to hear your thoughts. The Enhanced Access survey is being run by PCNs across Worcestershire, and is a fantastic opportunity for you to make your voice heard - helping us to plan for future Primary Care services in our area. 

To learn more about Enhanced Access, and to get involved, visit www.swhealthcare.org.uk/ea before Monday 11th July. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

If you have a positive lateral flow test you need to upload the result to the direct gov website where you will be able to then download an isolation note to give to your employer rather than requesting sick notes from GP's.

COVID PASS FOR 12-15 year olds

The NHS COVID Pass service is now available to 12 to15 year olds, accessible via NHS.UK for those aged 12 years old and over, and the NHS App for those aged 13 years old and over. 

Both the digital and letter NHS COVID Pass are widely accepted for international travel. It provides a record of all COVID-19 vaccinations received, with the COVID Pass showing evidence of recovery for 180 days following a positive test. Make sure you check the entry requirements of the country you are visiting as requirements for testing and vaccination can vary from country to country.
