Information for Previously Shielding Patients

The latest advice for patients in relation to the Tier 3 lockdown on Wirral is as follows:

For Local Covid Alert Level – VERY HIGH: work from home, in general stay at home as much as possible, and avoid all but essential travel. You should also significantly reduce shopping trips, and if possible use online delivery or ask people in your household, support bubble or volunteers to collect food and medicines. People in these areas are encouraged to still go outside for exercise, and can still go to school and to work if they cannot work from home. We recognise that a small number of individuals may require additional support to follow the guidance at this alert level, and they are advised to contact their local authority if they need assistance. 

It is essential that everyone who needs to access health services is supported to do so. Individuals who are Clinically Extremely Vulnerable may be particularly anxious about attending health settings, and this should be taken into account in care planning and in communications about attending appointments and visiting NHS sites.
