Unexpectedly I received a text on Thursday saying I had been identified as someone who may be at high risk if I catch Coronavirus and I was advised to shield at home until 30th June.
It also said I should have received a letter from the NHS previously to confirm this. I haven't received anything before and this was the first communication I have received.
I have contacted my GP asking why I have been identified as high risk (so far I haven't heard back from them). It seems a bit late in the day to say I need to shield, and I have been going to work (I have limited exposure to people/general public) since the lockdown etc started.
I have cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, scoliosis, obstructive sleep apnoea, noctural hypoventilation (I am on NIV at night). I also suffer from shortness of breath and drops in oxygen levels on exertion etc, which no one can get to the bottom of.
