We have discovered that someone with pulmonary hypertension has recently received a notice from the National Shielding Service advising that their GP or hospital clinician has recommended they no longer need to follow government advice to shield.
Although this may be an isolated incident, if you do receive this notice in the near future it should be ignored. *If you have pulmonary hypertension, it is vital that you continue to shield*
