Shielded Patients - LMC Update

Publication date: April 2020

The LMC shares practices’ concerns about the shielded patients project run by NHSE which has resulted in large amounts of work for primary care, an inconsistent approach from secondary care, and confusion for many patients. 

We advise all practices to focus on ensuring any lists they are asked to review or generate are correct, rather than rushing to achieve a specific deadline. 

The LMC has expressed this view to CCG colleagues, and will support practices who encounter any difficulties. 

We have just produced a shielded patients update which summarises the latest guidance on shielding patients in higher risk groups, and provides information for practices to work from.
