COVID -19 SHIELDING LETTERS
The practice is receiving a high volume of calls from patients enquiring about shielding letters for patients with certain conditions. We have been advised not to send any letters at the moment as the original searches to identify these patients were not comprehensive enough and new reports will hopefully be issued to practices from NHS England this week. Once we receive this information we will contact the patients identified
We also understand that a number of patients have received text messages from NHS England informing them to shield or isolate. We do not have any control over these messages and we may not be able to tell you why you have one.
We are extremely busy at the moment and working with skeleton staff, can we ask that you do not contact us about the above, we will be in touch if you are identified by NHS England.
