Free Supplies of Vitamin D

You may have seen on the news that the Government are offering free supplies of Vitamin D to those on the clinically extremely vulnerable list who previously received a letter advising they need to shield at the start of the pandemic.

All those eligible will be contacted by the Government by letter which will outline how to register to receive supplies of Vitamin D.  These will be delivered directly to patient homes from a central stock and will not come from the practice.

We ask all patients not to contact us regarding this.  Please wait until you receive your letter from the Government which will tell you what to do.

We can only issue prescriptions for those patients who are already taking Vitamin D supplements on medical advice, and this will continue as normal.

You can find further information on the Government’s website: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/at-risk-groups-to-receive-free-winter-supply-of-vitamin-d.

Thank you.
