Are you recovering from COVID-19?
Support for your recovery from COVID-19
The COVID-19 virus can have a huge impact on our physical and mental health. People recover at different rates and experience different challenges during their recovery.
Your COVID Recovery from the NHS helps you to understand what has happened to you and what you might expect as part of your recovery.
The site features a wealth of information including:
COVID vaccine ‘passports’
From 17 May international travel will be permitted to a limited number of countries and in some cases proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required. The mechanism for proving your vaccine status is through the NHS app.
For those who cannot access the NHS app you can request written proof that you have received your COVID-19 vaccination by contacting the NHS on 119. Please do not contact your GP practice.
Planning to travel? The NHS app will be your COVID-19 vaccine ‘passport’.
Text message invite to book COVID-19 vaccination
Whitby, Coast and Moors Primary Care Network will be starting to use a web-based solution to help us manage our appointment system for the COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
We will be sending text messages to invite patients to book an appointment for their COVID-19 vaccine.
The message you receive will come from ‘accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk’
We realise there are lots of scams out there at the moment and wanted to reassure you that if you receive a message from ‘accurx.thirdparty.nhs.uk’ inviting you to click on a link to book your appointment that it is a legitimate text message from your GP practice.
Once you click on the link in your text message you will be directed to our appointment system and be asked to choose an appointment time. You will also be asked for your date of birth. You will not be asked for any other personal information.
We understand that not everyone has a mobile phone or will be able to respond to a text message so we will continue to telephone those patients to invite them for their COVID-19 vaccination and book an appointment for them.
If you have any concerns please contact us.
You can watch a video with instructions for how to book a vaccination appointment:
