Covid-19 Support for Vulnerable Patients
There are, other people apart from the ‘very high risk’ / shielding patients who are classed as vulnerable and would who would benefit from self-isolation such as those over 70 with long-term conditions.
If people in this group are in need of help with shopping and prescriptions then they will have to register their need via these local helplines:
Support can also be found at the following government site www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-support
This Service has information about:
- feeling unsafe
- going in to work
- paying bills or being unemployed
- getting food
- having somewhere to live
- mental health and wellbeing
Please note these people WILL NOT be eligible for emergency food or priority shopping slots due to them not being included in the shielded cohort but could receive help from a local band of willing volunteers registered with both councils.
