Holding answer received on 04 June 2020

General practitioners and hospital specialists have been asked to review their shielded patient lists based on clinical judgement and an assessment of everyone’s needs. They have also been provided with guidance to support these decisions, which should be made following discussion with the patient and taking into account their individual clinical circumstances.

Information on the number of patients removed from shielded patient lists is not held centrally.
