Beta version

Beta version

This is a public beta version of this dashboard. It may change without notice.

What this data shows

The dashboards provide a count of living patients that are classified as being on the Shielded Patient List. 

The open data contains:

  • A count of living patients that are classified as being on the Shielded Patient List by CCG of residence, broken down by age band and gender
  • A count of living patients that are classified as being on the Shielded Patient List by local authority of residence, broken down by age band and gender

This data has been released to inform the public and support the health and social care system in planning. 

It is updated regularly to inform the public and support the health and social care system with planning.  Each list will be based on the latest version of the shielded patient list clinical algorithm at that time.

The open dataset includes regional and local data to allow for analysis, modelling and planning to take place to aid the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Caveats

The shielded patients list is continually being refreshed with additional data, updated data, and/or updated logic.

This data is only accurate at the time of production.

Only patients with a CCG in England are included in this analysis, and therefore the number of patients in the CCG data will not be the same as the total number of patients on the SPL
