This evidence brief presents findings produced by linking the shielding patients list with datasets from the National Survey for Wales.

For this analysis we linked National Survey for Wales data with the Shielding Patients List (SPL) dataset as at 24 February 2021. The report explores whether people who were on the SPL due to their being identified as clinically extremely vulnerable also had other non-clinical vulnerabilities. The National Survey for Wales provides data on a range of characteristics, such as material deprivation, Welsh language ability, loneliness and wellbeing.
