COVID VACCINATIONS UPDATE - June 2021
The practice's vaccination site at Islip Village Hall has now closed. Patients who are eligible for a vaccination but have not yet received their first or second vaccination can access these through the National Booking Service at:
or by calling 119. If you are refused an appointment through the National Booking Service please contact the Admin Manager at the practice for support in accessing your vaccination.
Certificates or evidence of Covid Vaccination Status
We are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.
Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information.
Proof of your vaccination status will be available in the NHS app from 17th May 2021 and in some of the other apps that provide you with Patient online services.
The NHSapp can be downloaded from:
https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone/iOS
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for Android.
If you have not used it before, there is a self-registration process within the app to create an "NHS login" as per https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-log-in/
If you already have access/ login details for patient online services, for example "Patient Access", you may use this.
Alternatively, 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 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. The letter may to take another 5 days to reach you, or more if postal services are affected. Please take account of this when making your plans.
IMPORTANT SURGERY UPDATE - MAY 2021
Please read the document below for important and up-to-date surgery information during the Covid-19 outbreak.
It is very important that you do not come to the surgery unless you have been asked to do so by a member of the team.
We are taking this essential action to protect your health and the health of your community.
With effect from 1st July 2019 The Key Medical Practice will be working as part of a Primary Care Network with three local practices, Gosford Medical Centre, Islip and Woodstock Surgery. Please click on the link below to read an information sheet which has been written by the Patient Participation Group Forum about what this means for our patients.
Welcome to The Key Medical Practice
Our aim is to provide high quality, effective health care delivered by compassionate and efficient staff.
We hope you find all the information you need in our website. If not, please do let us know. Our practice leaflet contains much about our staff and services and can be found here.
We have been looking at ways to improve access for our patients. Did you know you can book GP and blood test appointments and order medications online? These services are very easy to use and are proving popular with many patients. Please download an application form and bring to reception with photo ID so we can provide you with your pin.
Nominating a pharmacy is another great time saver. Simply tell reception which pharmacy is most convenient for you and we can send your prescription there directly. Two working days after you have requested your medication it will be ready for collection at your nominated pharmacy. If you choose to change your nominated pharmacy at any time, just let reception know.
The practice has an active Patient Participation Group. More information about their work can be found under the 'Have Your Say' tab above. The page now includes a link to the minutes from their latest meeting.
