Department for the Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey has announced that people who have received shielding letters from their GP can now register for priority online delivery slots with the three large supermarkets.

To access this service you must first register online via NI Direct.

From my correspondence with The Inclusive Mobility and Transport Advisory Committee (IMTAC), I know there are many older people and disabled people who are currently self-isolating and do not have a shielding letter from their GP.
