Arun, Adur & Worthing council are coordinating support for vulnerable people.

They have set up a web form which people can fill in or someone can fill it in on their behalf.  There is a phone line as well but they are asking for this to only be used by anyone who can’t use the internet as they have minimal resource to answer calls.

The web form goes through a series of welfare questions and once complete, will be passed to a local team of responders who will contact them to offer whatever support they need.

If you have staff who are able to go through the form with people and submit it for them, that is the most helpful option.  If not, you can email the weblink to them.  Please, please avoid giving out the number if at all possible otherwise it won’t cope.

 

This is the link to the web form for ADUR & Worthing

This is the information being publicised and is on the website.

 

 

In addition - people in the most vulnerable group (those that had a letter) are being supported by West Sussex County Council.  If you have a patient who thinks they should be in that group but they did not get a letter, they can register as ‘extremely vulnerable’ via this link

Patient Comms for our vulnerable cohort:

 

Covid-19 can affect everyone. There are certain groups who are at higher risk of severe illness if they were to get Covid-19. If you are in one of these groups you are considered more vulnerable to Covid-19. It is vital that we all take social distancing extremely seriously in order to protect those most at risk.

If you fall into any of the 3 categories below you must follow strict social distancing for at least 12 weeks:

  1. 70 years old or older (even if you do not have any medical conditions)
  2. If you are under 70 years with any underlying medical condition (these are people who are entitled to an annual flu jab)
  3. If you are pregnant

Advice on how to do this is available on: 

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults

There are some people who will have received a letter from NHS England as they are considered extremely vulnerable. If you, or a relative, has received this letter it is vital that you follow the instructions clearly.

 

Everyone is at risk from Covid-19.
