Operation Shield Support Service

Operation Shield is a Government initiative where around 1.5 million people across the country have been identified as being at most risk from COVID-19 (Coronavirus) mainly because of an underlying health condition. These people have been strongly advised to stay at home at all times and avoid any face-to-face contact for a period of at least 12 weeks.

Operation Shield enables these people to self-isolate at home by providing a regular supply of essential food and medication (if appropriate). People that are part of Operation Shield would have received a letter from the NHS providing more information including how to register.
