Shielding vulnerable patients from Covid-19

Published: 28 April, 2020

Advice on Covid-19 is changing day by day. A significant change was the recommendation that a group of high-risk patients should begin to shield. This means not leaving the house for any reason for a period of 12 weeks.

RCGP Learning have produced a short module which identifies this group and discussed the differences between shielding and social isolation, as well as the actions that GPs need to take now to identify this group, and inform those patients who have been wrongly told to shield.

The 15 minute module – Shielding vulnerable patients from Covid-19 – is part of the RCGP Learning COVID-19 Resource Hub
