COVID Vaccine Passports

 

We are aware that nhs staff, and in particularly vaccinators, have been fielding a number of questions regarding the provision of COVID passports for patients. We are now appealing to the public not to ask our staff for these at vaccination centres and to not contact their GP Practice to ask for a COVID vaccination passport or status certificate.

 

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

 

We would  point patients to the COVID FAQs on the NHS Lothian website if they wish to find out more information.

In Times of Bereavement

If Death Occurs At Home

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

2. Contact a funeral director.

3. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).

4. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.

5. The Registrar will normally issue a certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral.  They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.

2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
