NHS England has sent letters to those registered as having a High Risk Condition. You may fall into this group if you are :
someone who's have received an organ transplant and remain on ongoing immunosuppression medication
someone with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radiotherapy
some with blood or bone marrow cancer such as leukaemia who are at any stage of treatment
someone with severe chest conditions such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma (requiring hospital admissions or multiple courses of steroid tablets)
someone with severe diseases of body systems, such as severe kidney disease (dialysis)
NHS England has set up a facility where you can self declare as Extremely Vulnerable. The Surgery periodically receives these updates and the Clinical Team may need to ring you to discuss this further. If based on your medical record you do fall into this category we will classify you as "At HIgh Risk of Developing Complications from Coronavirus" and a letter will be sent confirming this.
Of course we should all do all we can to protects ourselves and others by Staying at Home, Washing Hands and maintaining a 2 metre distance from others when out. There is no requirement to wear a mask but we suggest you do cover your nose and mouth with a cloth like mask . Looking at those countries that require this shows us that their rate of infection is lower than ours so we feel it makes sense to take this precaution.
If you require help with Food etc there is a DEDICATED Government helpline:
Tel : 0800 028 8327
You will be asked to give your details to register.
