Following the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine programme, the Government has ended the national shielding programme. If you were previously identified as clinically extremely vulnerable, you are advised to continue to follow the guidance contained in Coronavirus: how to stay safe and help prevent the spread.
Full information on the ceasing of the Shielding programme is available on the Government Website.
The Government will be writing to all Clinically Extremely Vulnerable individuals to inform them of this decision.
Mental Health and Wellbeing
People previously identified as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable (CEV) can visit the Every Mind Matters website for advice and practical steps that they can take to support their wellbeing and manage their mental health. The Let’s Talk Loneliness website also has a variety of tips, advice and further resources. The Hub of Hope can also be used to find local sources of mental health support and services, both from the NHS and from other organisations.
