From Saturday 1 August, clinically extremely vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield but support will remain available from NHS volunteers and local councils. People will retain their priority for supermarket delivery slots and still be able to access help with shopping, medication, phone calls and transport to medical appointments.
If you are currently in receipt of a Government Food Box & have been asked to Shield & follow a strict renal diet, please CONTACT US for further advice.
The current Government advice regarding Shielding can be accessed here . . .
