COVID-19 Vaccine Passports
If you do want to travel and require confirmation that you have had a COVID vaccination this can be found on the NHS App. The app will also provide data on recent COVID testing.

How to chase a hospital appointment or referral
Sometimes you may get referred for an appointment with a service based at one of our local hospitals or private providers. This is called being referred and is usually done through an electronic system called the NHS E-Referral service (previously called Choose and Book).
If you have been referred to another service it is important that contact that service if you have any questions.
