President update 28th July 2020 Shielding advice –  What will change from 1 August

President update 28th July 2020 Shielding advice – What will change from 1 August

The current BSPGHAN advice on shielding will change on  August 1st in line with Government advice.

From 1 August, the government will pause shielding unless the transmission of COVID-19 in the community starts to rise significantly.

See GOV.UK: guidance on shielding and protecting people who are clinically extremely vulnerable from coronavirus.    **

This guidance will be updated on 1 August.

See specific advice for our patients’ families

**Clinically extremely vulnerable children and young people (0 to 18)

Specialists in paediatric medicine have reviewed the evidence on the level of risk posed to children and young people from COVID-19. The latest evidence indicates that the risk of serious illness for most children and young people is low.

All children and young people currently identified as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable, and advised to shield, should continue to do so until 31 July, when the government will pause shielding for everyone.

All decisions on whether children and young people should be removed from the shielded patient list (and therefore will not be advised to shield again in future if transmission starts to increase significantly) should be based on a consultation with a paediatric specialist or GP who will be best placed to determine the most appropriate care. advises that a paediatric specialist or GP will be in touch over the summer to have these discussions.

Returning to school

  • children who are clinically extremely vulnerable can go back to school (when the rest of their class goes back)

See guidance on supporting children and young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

This advice is of a general nature and should be treated as a guide.

This does not replace any local public health measures put in place to protect the local population. If there is an outbreak of COVID-19 within your area, please follow any guidance set out locally or any specific law which applies to the area you live in  .If local restrictions are in place in your area, please visit local lockdowns guidance

Best wishes
BSPGHAN President July 28th
