COVID-19 Travel Advice
It is not our policy to issue COVID-19 certificates for international travel purposes, this includes 'fit to fly' letters for COVID-19.
Travel advice is changing very rapidly, therefore it is recommended that you check the government website as it gives the most up to date information on what you will need to do when planning to travel abroad.

AquAid - The Africa Trust
Here, at Nottingham City General Practice Alliance, we are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquAid.
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust.
These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding a photo and a letter of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe; and have donated in excess of £17 million to charity.

Face coverings to be worn when visiting the practice
Although the government guidelines on face coverings will change from 19 July 2021 it is our priority to ensure that all patients and staff are safe when in our practice. To maximise everyone's safety, we will continue to ask all patients and visitors to wear a face-covering when they come into the building. The face-covering must cover your nose and mouth. If you are unable to do this, please speak to the reception team. Thank you for your cooperation.
