IF YOUR PROBLEM IS AN EMERGENCY PLEASE CALL 999
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that GP practices have had to adapt the way they work and how services are provided. The pandemic is yet not over, and so some of these changes are still in place. This has been done to keep you and everyone else safe.
GP services remain very busy, delivering more appointments than ever before.
We are sorry to hear experiences of people struggling to get through on the telephone to speak with us. We appreciate your patience during this difficult period.
If you need to see someone in person, you still can
Our teams in GP practices may need to do an initial assessment over the phone first to keep you and everyone else safe. This helps give you the type of appointment you need:
- to be seen in person
- a phone consultation
- a video consultation
- help from your local pharmacy
As part of this assessment, our receptionists might need to ask you some additional questions. This is to help ensure you get the right care, in the right way, by the right professional. All staff operate according to strict guidelines and work under clinical supervision. You can trust them to treat all information confidentially.

COVID-19 VACCINATION STATUS LETTER
GP practices cannot provide you with a COVID-19 vaccination status letter. You can demonstrate your vaccination status by downloading the NHS App. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified. For more information visit www.nhs.uk/nhsapp.
If you do not have internet access, have had both doses of your COVID-19 vaccination, and are due to travel outside the UK in the near future, 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.

Message from CQC - 07-10-2021
We suspended our routine inspection programme in March 2020 in response to Covid-19 and do not intend to resume it for the immediate future. We have continued to use a mix of onsite and off-site monitoring to ensure the public have assurance as to the safety and quality of the care they receive. As we emerge from the pandemic we are further developing our monitoring approach. In accordance with this approach we carried out a review of the data available to us about Dr JI Solomon's Practice on 07-10-2021
We have not found evidence that we need to carry out an inspection or reassess our rating at this stage.
