Information on Covid-19 and vaccinations

This  website aims to offer residents of east and west Suffolk and north east  Essex a single, comprehensive and accurate source of information on Covid-19 and vaccinations.

Created  by health care experts at the Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated  Care System (ICS), this locally focused site will contain lots of useful  information to inform and reassure people during this time, enabling  them to protect their own and their families physical and mental  wellbeing.

Find your NHS number

This website helps you find your NHS number. This is one of the questions that will be asked when you need your  covid vaccination and when people don’t know, they phone their GP  surgery.

Asking people to utilise this service instead will help reduce unnecessary contact.

You can also use this service on behalf of someone else where the name,  date of birth and registered home postcode is known. You can opt for  the number to be sent to you by text, email or letter.

NB: You cannot use this service to book tests for travel.

You  can order one pack every 3 days if you’re eligible. A pack contains 7  tests. Your test pack will usually arrive within 3 days. It might take  longer during busy periods or public holidays.
