If you are in a group of people in the UK defined by the NHS as clinically vulnerable or clinically extremely vulnerable to Covid-19 you might be concerned about missing crucial teaching sessions on campus. If so, we would like to be in contact with you to understand more about the decisions you might need to make and the type of support you may need. During the pandemic the Disabled Student Support team can talk to you regardless of whether or not you are usually supported by this service, and whether or not you have a learning contract set up.
If you have one or more of the conditions listed below and would like one of our Disability Advisers to be in touch to discuss your concerns, please complete this form and we will get in touch with you.

Clinically vulnerable people include all those who were told to shield at home during the pandemic, up to 1st August 2020 as well as people who have one or more of the conditions listed below:

  • A cancer diagnosis and/or have had treatment for cancer in the last 12 months
  • A lung condition, e.g. asthma
  • At higher risk of infection either due to a medical condition or due to medication, e.g immunosuppressant medicine
  • A diagnosis of diabetes or heart, kidney or liver disease
  • A brain or nerve disease, e.g. multiple sclerosis
  • Age 70 or older
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy

Please only complete the form if you fall into one of these groups. If you are not in one of these groups please refer to information about keeping safe on campus on MyHallam which is updated regularly and look out for emails and course related updates.
