Shielding

Sick certification while self-isolating for Covid 19

People at very high risk who need shielding

The extremely vulnerable can register with the government for support

Shielding: Guidance for Asthma patients

 

Extremely vulnerable people need to shield themselves to protect against Coronavirus infection. The government has, over the last few weeks, used several methods to identify and inform those people. They have written directly using information gained from our computer system. They have encouraged people to self-identify (see link above). GPs and hospital consultants have also been encouraged to contact people they have identified as being vulnerable – once we have updated this on our system, the patient should then subsequently receive a letter, although this may a take a little longer.

Shielding letters can be used for employers to allow for absence from work as per government advice. Some superstores are allowing priority online delivery slots for patients in this category who have a letter. If you feel you have been overlooked then please check your eligibility using the links below and then contact us via  email or eConsult (or phone if you not have internet). One of the doctors will look at your notes and make a decision.
