NHS Shielded Patient List

The Shielded Patient List (formerly known as the Vulnerable Patient List) comprises those patients whom the NHS has identified as needing advice and to follow shielding measures due to specific  illness.  

Government advice on shielding and social distancing is changing regularly.  For the most up to date advice please visit the Gov.uk website.  At the time of writing the following link is the most up to date advice:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19

If you are unsure if you are required to shield email the Practice on admin.hmg@nhs.net and one of the Partners will advise you.

If you are vulnerable and have an urgent need that cannot be met through existing support networks, you can contact the Kent Together helpline on 03000 41 92 92 or at - www.kent.gov.uk/KentTogether.  It is a 24 hour service, see her for further details:   Kent Together
