Those residents who have been identified as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable will receive a letter advising them of government guidance. As part of the National Restrictions, the Government is also advising all clinically extremely vulnerable people to take extra shielding measures to protect themselves. This advice will apply until 21 February 2021. If the advice is to continue beyond that date, residents identified as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable will be written to again with further information.
Our adult social care services are working in partnership with care providers across the borough and providing them with information and advice.
This policy defines the circumstances in which Doncaster Council will consider a person vulnerable. This will not preclude the Council from taking any form of recovery action but it will ensure that the circumstances of the vulnerable person are fully considered prior to any action being taken.
