Coronavirus – Shielding Letters (updated 16th November 2020)

As part of the second lockdown, there have been no provisions for ‘shielding.’

If you were previously advised to shield/ part of the ‘high risk categories’, we strongly urge you to follow Government guidance as found on their website.

NHS England have advised practices that we DO NOT need to write letters in support of shielding or vulnerable status this time round. Kindly refrain from requesting this from us. Additionally, we are unable to provide letters to schools or employers in relation to this.

Patients may wish to obtain a summary printout of their medical record via Reception and/or Patient Access.

Roxbourne kindly request that patients follow Government guidance at all times.
