Help for the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable

Find out what help and support is available for people who are extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

People who are defined as clinically extremely vulnerable (CEV) are at very high risk of severe illness from COVID-19. We provide support to people registered as CEV to help you follow government guidance.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable, you should have received a letter from the NHS or your GP telling you this. You should also have received a letter and a phone call from us at the start of the current restrictions. This was so we could understand your needs.

Getting CEV support from us

Our CEV Response team contacts residents who have been identified as CEV by the NHS to check they are supported.

You can contact our CEV Response team by phone on 01803 207777. The team is available from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday.

If you think you should be in the CEV group but have not been identified then you can register online. You can also ask someone to register you on your behalf.

Register as clinically extremely vulnerable

You should also speak to your GP or clinician.

Other support services

The Torbay Community Helpline can help people who are isolating with non-emergency matters. It is jointly run by the Torbay Community Development Trust and Brixham Does Care.

The NHS Volunteer Responders are also available to help you to stay at home and stay safe.

Wellbeing advice and support

It is important to keep active whilst following the CEV guidelines. There is a wide range of health and wellbeing support on offer so here are some key pages for you to start with.

Staying active

Improve your mood

The Healthy Lifestyles team may also be able to offer support to CEV people who want to stop smoking, eat more healthily, lose weight and be more active.
