CVS Inverclyde and Compassionate Inverclyde are joining forces and working with the local COVID-19 community groups to signpost into a new Inverclyde prescription service for local residents needing support during the pandemic.
The Inverclyde Community Link Worker (CLW) team, managed by CVS Inverclyde, are now our team of Shielders. They are workings tirelessly alongside local community groups, to connect with individuals in their neighbourhoods in a bid to ensure everyone in need receives their prescription on time.

Our Shielders are actively supporting the community during the COVID-19 outbreak in many other ways. While usually based in the 14 GP practices in Inverclyde, the team are using technology to continue to help people through phone calls, video calls and text messaging. Thanks to this approach, they are still able to take referrals from anyone who feels that they would benefit from their support.
Further community services are in the final stages of planning and will emerge in the coming days.
