DERBYSHIRE DALES DISTRICT COUNCIL - SUPPORT FOR CLINICALLY VULNERABLE PEOPLE CAMPAIGN

DDDC have advised that many of our most vulnerable residents may be missing out on essential support because they haven't responded to a recent NHS letter, delivered to them as they are classed as being clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

Unfortunately DDDC have no way of knowing who these residents are. Worse, some are likely to be difficult to reach via their usual communications channels. It would be much appreciated therefore if you could spread the word in your communities.

DDDC have launched a campaign urging family and friends to register for support on behalf of people who have received the NHS letter - anyone can do this online at www.gov.uk/coronavirus-extremely-vulnerable

They are also again encouraging anyone not classed by their GP or hospital clinician as being clinically extremely vulnerable, but still needing support, to register for help via the County Council's Community Response Unit at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/gethelp or call 01629 535091 Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 9am to 1pm
