CNWL has published a document of frequently asked questions for patients deemed to be at the highest clinical risk from Coronavirus.

These are patients who should last week have received a letter from the NHS informing them that they should stay at home at all times and avoid all face-to-face contact for a period of at least 12 weeks.

This is set out in the Public Health England guidance published on 21 March 2020. This is known as ‘shielding’.

The document is available on the Trust website here.
