COVID-19 Your risk changed to low.

Dear Patient,

We have received from the NHS the list of our patients who have been sent a letter from the NHS indicating that they are at High Risk of severe illness if they contract Coronavirus (Covid 19) and you are on this list.

Your GP has reviewed your medical history and fortunately has identified you as at Low risk of developing severe illness, rather than High risk. This means you don’t need to follow the very strict “Shielding” measures outlined in the letter you received from the NHS. However it is important that you continue to adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines.
