I am at risk of severe illness

The Government has identified some people who are ‘extremely vulnerable’ to getting seriously ill from Coronavirus because of an underlying health condition such as COPD, certain cancers and auto-immune conditions, and pregnant women with underlying health conditions.

Those in this group will have been contacted by the NHS to request that they should not leave home for at least 12 weeks, and have been advised that if they do not have friends, family or neighbours who can provide support, they can register for help to access food, medicine and social contact via www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable.
