The shielding programme in England has now ended. Those who were previously considered clinically extremely vulnerable will not be advised to shield in the future or asked to follow specific national guidance. They are advised to follow the same general guidance as everyone else, in addition to any condition-specific advice that may have been provided by their specialist. The NHS Volunteer Responders programme and a range of other support services continue to be available and information on these has been provided to those previously considered to be clinically extremely vulnerable.
