FACE MASK POLICY
Although face masks will no longer be a legal requirement from 19 July 2021, as a clinical healthcare setting, Kiveton Park Medical Practice has decided that all staff and patients must continue to wear masks within the surgery until further notice.
Infection rates of Covid-19 are on the increase, especially in our locality, and we feel it is imperative that we protect our most vulnerable patients and our workforce. This is essential if we are to continue to provide patients with a local primary care service. The Delta variant is highly contagious and has the potential to spread quickly in confined areas. We simply cannot risk acting as a focus for infection.
We thank patients for their understanding and co-operation. In the hopefully unlikely event that a patient refuses to respect this request, then they may be asked to rearrange the appointment so that we can see them in a COVID secure environment.
From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment. We are a Veteran Friendly Practice.

Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Both of our surgeries at Kiveton Park and Harthill have full access for disabled patients.
