Welcome to Sibford Surgery
Our small, friendly practice was first established in the village of Sibford Gower more than 100 years ago. We have two doctors and a full complement of ancillary staff working from the surgery. There are facilities for the disabled, and a dispensary to supply medicines to most of our patients.
This website has been produced to welcome you to the practice and is designed for the benefit of present and prospective patients, to inform you of the services which we provide and how you may make the best use of them.
Please help us to offer you the best possible service by reading the information.
We have had several patients ask us to be added on to a waiting list for last minute/unused covid vaccinations, please be advised that we have no access to any such list. Please do not contact the surgery about this.
Regarding certificates or evidence about your 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.
If you do not want covid vaccination please also let us know as this will save us time trying to contact you.
You will be called for your second vaccination by text message 11 weeks after the first. If you have not been contacted by 12 weeks then please ring reception.
Please ensure we have your current mobile number on your medical record as otherwise this could delay your invitation.
