COVID-19: Advice for Gypsies and Travellers who are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19 and what to do if you think you are extremely vulnerable but haven’t received any advice yet from the NHS

This guidance is for people, including children, who are at high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) because of an underlying health condition, and for their family, friends and carers.

People who have a condition which makes them extremely vulnerable should have received a letter from NHS England asking you to shield yourself, to reduce the chance of getting coronavirus (COVID19) and to follow face-to-face distancing measures. Watch the video to find out what this means for you and what to do if you think that you are clinically vulnerable to COVID-19 and you have not received a letter from the NHS.

What you need to know

You can read the full government guidance here.

If you are a clinically extremely vulnerable person, you can complete this form to register for additional support with deliveries for food and prescriptions. 

We’ve asked the Government to make the form accessible to people with no fixed address and hope that they will do this. In the meantime, if you are having difficulties filling in the form, please get in touch.
