Welcome to Eightlands Surgery

Covid Vaccinations - Dewsbury Health Centre

Please note that if you need to discuss your vaccination appointment at Dewsbury Health Centre please call the GP surgery you are registered at and NOT Eightlands Surgery (unless you are an Eightlands patient). Although the vaccination centre is in Dewsbury Health Centre we are ONLY able to sort appointments for patients registered with us and cannot answer general queries. 

Proof of Covid Vaccination 

Please click this link for information about how to prove your covid vaccination status for travel: Demonstating you COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status

Through the NHS App

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 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.

By calling 119

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 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 5 working days to reach you.

The letter will be sent automatically to the address registered with your GP. The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you. If you’ve recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.

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

 

Covid Vaccination - 1st June 2021

We have now sent invites to all patients aged over 18 years to book covid vaccinations. If you are over 18 years old and haven't received an invite please call us to book as soon as possible. 

We have invited all eligible patients in cohorts 1-9 for the second covid vaccination.  If you have recieved a message to book your vaccination and have not yet done so, please contact us to book as soon as possible. If you are aged over 50 years and haven't yet recieved an invite please contact us book. 

Covid Vaccine Booking

We are now using a booking system called 'AccuRx' which will send you a text to book your appointment. This text will come from a number that will show in your phone as 'Eightlands'. This message is personal to you and can be sent to a relative or friend to book on your behalf if you cannot do it from your phone.  If you do not wish to have the vaccine, please follow the link and decline the vaccine - we will then update your medical record and stop contacting you to book.

In order for us to invite patients more quickly for the covid vaccination, it would help to have a mobile phone number on file. Please use the form online to update your contact details.  

Thank you
