IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS – Shielding Guidance

People who shielded last spring are being advised to shield again.

Some people’s circumstances may have changed since then.

If you think your circumstances have changed, please tell us how & we will ask as doctor to review your case.

Otherwise the government advice is that you should shield.

We do not know yet whether vaccination will mean we can recommend an end to shielding or not.
