Hi everyone, hope you are keeping safe. Just wondered if anyone has had an NHS letter about shielding. My husband has mixed dementia plus other issues and is on oxygen 24/7 but has No letter. Our council "sitting" service has been withdrawn to redeploy carers which I understand, but I used that time to shop! Guess I am not alone in not being able to leave partner on own. How are you managing? X

Quite contrary

Hi @Catlady56, what condition does he have to require 24/7 oxygen? I believe the information given is that if you do not receive a letter by 29th March but believe someone should be shielding then you should contact them.
