Public Health Devon update - Councils ready to support most clinically vulnerable

We work very closely with our District Councils in Devon, and with national lockdown now upon us again, we are ready to support residents who are identified as being 'clinically extremely vulnerable'.

34,000 people were identified in Devon during the last lockdown as being clinically extremely vulnerable based on their long-term health conditions, and many spent several months with little, if any, interaction outside of their households.

We, and charities and community groups, worked hard to ensure that those who needed support received help - including food deliveries and shopping, and lifts to medical appointments.

The government has written to people identified as being clinically extremely vulnerable this week, and all the Devon councils have put in place a support programme for those who need additional help to comply with the new national lockdown guidance.

Dr Virginia Pearson, Director of Public Health Devon, said:

"I know that this pandemic has been a very worrying time for everyone, and that many who were clinically extremely vulnerable last time and asked to ‘shield’, found lockdown to be a very difficult time." 

"Therefore, please contact others for help if you need it, and stay in touch with family and friends during this time – but do this digitally as much as possible, to keep that important social distance. Remember that your mental wellbeing is as important as your physical health."

Information about the range of support available to people identified as being clinically extremely vulnerable is published on our website.
