Eligible patients will receive a letter inviting them to opt in for a free supply of Vitamin D supplements, to be delivered directly to their homes. Further information can be found on the ‘At-risk groups to receive free winter supply of vitamin D’ page on the Gov.UK website.
Deliveries will be free of charge, starting in January, and will provide four months’ worth of supplements. Patients do not need to contact practices and pharmacies to access the supplements. Guidance on how to take these supplements safely is available on the following website, which patients should read before deciding to opt in.
