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.  

Most patients will have received notification direct from the NHS but if you think you may fall into this group and  have not been contacted please read the advice letter below and the further information document.

Download the information here  regarding those conditions that put patients into the most vulnerable group and should therefore follow Shielding measures.  
It also lists those reasons why some patients are at increased risk and should follow the Social Isolation measures.

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
