Self registering as a vulneable patient
Posted on 14 Apr 2020
We have had a lot of queries from patients that think they should have had a shielding letter and haven't.
If you feel that you are classed as an extremely vulnerable patient and haven't had a letter from the government you can self-register using the link below. You will be asked a series of questions.
Your GP Practice will be supplied with the details of these patients at some point. Please note that we have not yet been supplied with the details of those that have already used this service. We do not have a time scale for when this will be received.
Upon receipt of this information we will be able to see who has now had a letter sent and those that have registered to class themselves as extremely vulnerable . These patients will be reviewed by a Clinician using the guidance we have been supplied with. If you are deemed as extremely vulnerable you will be sent a shielding letter by the practice.
Apologies but we cannot give timescales on when these will be looked at. Please be assured that we are working very hard and will take any action required as soon as we are able to.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
