COVID-19 Coronavirus At-risk patients


Patients who are identified as being particularly high risk will be receiving text messages and letters from the NHS. We must all now stay at home for 12 weeks so the safest advice is to follow the guidance in the letter if you have received it, even if you aren’t sure why it applies to you. Please don’t contact your GP to ask why you have received a letter – most of the patients are identified from automatic systems and your GP may not know why you have been included. If you have had a letter or text and get any symptoms of fever or cough, please visit NHS111 online for advice, or call NHS111 if you do not have internet access. https://www.england.nhs.uk/coronavirus/wp-content/uploads/sites/52/2020/03/at-risk-patient-letter-march-2020.pdf
