I have been following the 'What are the options' thread and today read about the updated regulations for France. I went off in search of the NHS App thinking that was the best way to prove my vaccination status. I am somewhat disgusted to find that a NATIONAL Health Service app only covers those who are registered with a GP in England. I understand that Covid rules are different for each country of the UK, but surely this should be covered by a National app. Rant over!

Each National Health Service does it's own thing, that is the power of devolution.

England is a Nation, the UK is a Union !

Equally frustrating is the PCR test which takes 72 hours. Add the length of the sailing to Roscoff and it doesn't seem possible to arrive with a test only 72 hours old.

And I have just spent a sunny afternoon half configuring a new iphone because my old one, which worked perfectly, was not compatible with the NHS App.

A Google search would seem to prove that statement to be incorrect. England is a Country which is part of the United Kingdom, a Union of four Countries. If each Country were a Nation, then travel between Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales would be International travel with everything that brings.

Thank you Angel, but that site is only for Scotland.

Oops, sorry John, I don't know why I assumed you were in Scotland.

Of course, my apologies if I upset any Irish people, or Northern Irish for that matter..

Most of them have Irish Passports anyway.

I am a Scot and I have a school friend who was born in England, attended school in Scotland and now lives in the USA. He has a UK passport by birth, he has been in the USA long enough to have been able to apply for and acquire a US passport and thanks to his dad being born in Northern Ireland he also has an Irish passport.
