Letters to High Risk Patients

Patients considered to be very high risk for COVID-19 due to underlying health conditions will have received a letter from NHS Business Services or from their hospital specialist department advising them to shield (stay at home at all times and avoid any face to face contact for twelve weeks)


General practice has been asked to identify other potentially high-risk patients and shall be writing to those patients shortly: however, we are still awaiting guidance from NHS England on this matter.
