Pandemic deliveries for vulnerable end on March 31

In Latest

The pandemic delivery service for clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) people will come to an end on March 31, the government has said.

From April 1, individuals who fall into the CEV category will not have to shield any more, meaning community pharmacies should stop sending deliveries to those patients under the service after March 31.

The delivery service for individuals who have been told by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate is unaffacted and runs until June 30.

"NHS England and NHS Improvement have published a letter for primary care teams on supporting CEV staff once shielding is paused," the PSNC said.

"It advises that employers, should refresh risk assessments for all CEV staff to determine the appropriate work arrangements from 1st April, reflecting the current workplace context, as well as including next steps to support these staff members."
