Support for clinically extremely vulnerable people

Get support if you are clinically extremely vulnerable to Coronavirus

Use this service if you have a medical condition which means you’re classed as being clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

Registering for Support

You will be able to use a new online service to register yourself, or on behalf of someone else, to:

  • request access to a priority supermarket delivery slot (if you have already got priority supermarket deliveries, you will keep them).
  • tell your council if you need support in order to follow this guidance that you are unable to arrange yourself and cannot be provided by friends, family or other support networks
  • make sure your details such as your address are up to date

Registration for the service can be found at Coronavirus Shielding Support

You’ll be asked for your NHS number, which you can find at the top the letter you should have received. It is helpful if you register even if you do not have any support needs at this time so we know to focus on caring for others who need it. You can log in and update your needs if circumstances change at any time.
