Covid pass name order different to passport
I've read a few threads about middle names or maiden names on UK Covid Vaccine passes on the NHS app, but mine is slightly different. I know that the NHS app only shows first and surnames, not middle.
Say for example my full name on my passport is John Bob David Smith. I have always gone by Bob since forever. My NHS records are under Bob Smith.
Therefore, my Covid Pass says Bob Smith. Passport says all 4 names, starting with John. Boarding pass, PLF etc is also under this full name. Everything except Covid Pass/NHS app.
I think I will ask my GP to change my name to be on the safe side (if they can do it in time) - but then having all my health records under a name I don't go by feels like a bit of a nuisance too.
I don't think my situation is that uncommon; if anyone has been in the same position please let me know how you got on!

I realise your case is one step further, with the middle name showing on the covid pass, but there must be a lot of people who go by their middle names, I can't imagine that every one of them has gone to their doctors and changed their medical record.
