Shielding

Chief Medical Officer letter to vulnerable people

For further information on the letter sent out to vulnerable people and available support please click here

Carmarthenshire County Council

We have been working hard to put arrangements in place to make sure support is available locally for people who are shielding. If residents do not have any family or friends that can help, or any local community groups that can support them, then they should contact the council.

We can arrange for food parcels to be delivered directly to their doorstep, and we can help supply and organise delivery of medicines where required. We are also in touch with a number of voluntary groups who can provide care and support for those who might be feeling very isolated.

You can help by directing residents to call us on 01267 234567 if they need any support, our telephone lines are open seven days a week between 8.30am and 6pm.

The list of people in the extremely vulnerable category was compiled by the NHS and unfortunately, we are unable to share this with you due to data protection regulations as it contains extremely sensitive personal information.

Pharmacies

General Information
During this unprecedented time, we can all help to support our pharmacists and their teams by following these five steps:

1. Do not visit a pharmacy if you or someone you live with has a temperature or a 
new cough 

2. Order your prescriptions 7 days before you need them to give the pharmacy time to help everyone. 

3. Put your phone number on your prescription. Wait for the pharmacy to call you. 
The pharmacy will phone you when your prescription is ready to pick up. Do not call the pharmacy unless it is very urgent. 

4. If you are staying at home because you have a new cough or temperature get friends or family to pick up your prescriptions or speak to your community pharmacy to see if they can help. 


5. If you are not ill, offer to pick up prescriptions for any friends and family who are ill. You will need their name and address to be able to pick up their prescription.
