To keep alert to changing government advice with regards to Covid-19, please visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus.
The advice remains that if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 such as a new continuous cough or fever or loss of/change in sense of smell and taste, you must self-isolate at home for 10 days. If you are self-isolating or have been advised to do so by a Track and Trace officer, you must not come to the GP practice.
If you have been told to self-isolate because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer, you do not need to contact your GP practice; the information you need is here: https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
Currently all requests for appointments will be assessed and a medical practitioner will speak to you before arranging a face-to-face appointment.
Vaccinations for 16/17 year olds
We are aware that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended the extension of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to 16 and 17 year olds.
We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England on when the programme will commence and how the vaccinations will be administered to this age group.
Please do not contact your GP – eligible young people will be contacted when the programme commences to advise on the next steps.
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. You can find out more at:

Mental Health Awareness
A new website has been launched, dedicated to helping children and young people in North Yorkshire find mental health support.
The Go-To – www.thegoto.org.uk – is designed to be a portal or ‘single point of information’ showcasing the mental health support services offered by different agencies in the county.
With the majority of young people currently not in school and many in isolation as a result of the restrictions imposed on movement to deal with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, health leaders believe online mental health support for young people has never been more important.
Extended Access Service
During the Covid-19 pandemic we are still offering appointments outside of core hours throughout Ryedale to provide services 7 days per week. These appointments are likely to be telephone or video calls. If you do require an appointment between 6:30-8pm weekdays or on weekends, please speak to reception about availability. Please note that appointments during Extended Access hours may be offered at Derwent Practice or at GP practices in Ampleforth, Sherburn or West Ayton.
