Clinically Extremely Vulnerable

  • Those who are classed as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable will be notified by the government.
  • If you have been advised to shield, please ensure you register your details on the gov.uk website.
  • This ensures that you are highlighted to the relevant NHS and other support services such as priority access to supermarket deliveries. You can register yourself or on behalf of someone else.

Getting Essentials

We are working with the Portishead Coronavirus Support Network to help Clincally Extremely Vulnerable residents get essentials. We will continue to provide support for those that need it, although priority will be given to the most vulnerable. If you can, firstly rely on friends, family, neighbours, local deliveries or online shopping to get essentials. 

If these are not possible:

Government guidance for other groups states they should continue to shop for essentials and prescriptions, whilst being especially careful to observe social distancing.
