  • A rare condition affecting the brain or nerves (including multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, Huntington’s disease or myasthenia gravis)
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Certain types of cancer
  • HIV or AIDS
  • A severe liver condition (such as cirrhosis)
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4 or 5
  • Had an organ transplant
  • Certain autoimmune or inflammatory conditions (such as rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory bowel disease)
  • A condition or treatment that makes you more likely to get infections
  • Had certain types of chemotherapy in the last 12 months
  • Had radiotherapy in the last 6 months

If you have tested positive for Covid, are at high risk and not heard from the Covid Medicines Delivery Unit and would like to discuss this with your GP, please call the practice and let us know you would like to speak with an GP.
