(SPIRE) Scottish Primary Care Information Resource 

NHSScotland is improving the way it uses information from GP patient records

From May 2017 we will improve the way we use information from GP patient records. These changes will help to plan and improve health and care services in Scotland.

SPIRE (Scottish Primary Care Information Resource) is a service that has been developed to help GPs, the NHS in Scotland and researchers to learn from information held at GP practices.

COVID Status Certification (Covid Passports) 

Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.

The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.

As part of this, we are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly

 ** UPDATE **

COVID Status Certification (Covid Passports)

Vaccination Status Scheme Launched

 

A service that allows people travelling abroad to access their record of vaccination status themselves has launched. Only those planning to travel to a country or territory where a record of vaccination status is needed as an entry requirement should download the record or request it. While there are no countries currently requiring vaccination status to travel, international travel restrictions can change quickly requiring such measures to be in place. The measures are intended to ease the burden on the NHS by removing the need for people to ask their GP for a status record.

As Scotland’s vaccination programme progresses, vaccination status will be replaced by digital COVID Status Certificates, which will include vaccination and testing data to be used for outbound international travel. People will be able access their COVID-19 Vaccine Status online, by logging on to

https://www.nhsinform.scot/covid-19-vaccine/after-your-vaccine/get-a-record-of-your-coronavirus-covid-19-vaccination-status

 A Freephone Covid Status Helpline will allow people to get the record posted to them. It can be contacted on 0808 196 8565.

 The Scottish Government continues to urge a highly cautious approach to international travel, given the risk of new variants.
