I still haven’t got my NHS Letter to say I am high risk. What do I do?

The NHS letters have identified extremely vulnerable people who are deemed a high risk. This was created using data at national level and the people identified have been contacted. GPs are now reviewing that list and using their local knowledge and RCGP guidance to consider if any patients not already contacted should be added.

Patients who have not received letters that feel that they are a high risk can self register for further support using the link below. Government guidance recommends that you register for this service before contacting your GP practice.

Doctorlink will be unable to discuss eligibility for NHS letters as this is an initiative managed directly by the NHS; further assessment of any high risk patients not already contacted will be made locally by your GP, in consideration of your full medical history.
