NHS Redbridge have have produced an advice leaflet about the support that is available for those who are shielding at home due to coronavirus.

 

It’s very important that people who have received a letter from the NHS advising them to stay at home and avoid all face-to face contact continue to follow this advice, rather than advice given to the general public. The Government is currently advising people to shield until the end of June and is regularly monitoring this position.

 

There is lots of support available for people to manage staying at home. This includes help with getting food, essentials, medication, staying active, and looking after their wellbeing. You can download the leaflet here.

We’re not printing copies as the information can get out of date quickly, but if you know anyone who is/might be shielding please could you:

  • forward this email
  • print the leaflet and put it through their door
  • call people up and talk them through the advice in the leaflet.

If you have newsletters, websites or social media please share the leaflet via these channels - anything you can do to get the message out would be great!
