Clinically vulnerable lists

There are two different high-risk groups for Covid-19: those at an increased risk of severe illness and those at the greatest risk of severe illness. You should be familiar with these lists both for patient and employee management purposes. The lists are currently identical across the UK, but we have included links to each country's website for ease of reference.

England - clinically vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable

Northern Ireland - vulnerable and clinically extremely vulnerable  

Scotland - higher risk of severe illness and extremely high risk of severe illness

Wales - people at increased risk and people extremely vulnerable
