Despite my best efforts to stay well, an LFT finally returned a positive result last Friday evening. 5+ years after a SCT for AML.
NHS England promised a system whereby those people identified as at high risk from Covid would receive anti-viral medication, within 5 days of the start of the infection, to try to avoid the need for a hospital admission. I have to admit I was a bit sceptical that this process would work efficiently and effectively, without me having to chase it up. Well I take it all back!
My PCR result was returned Sunday morning, and I was duly contacted by a triage nurse Sunday afternoon, who recorded some personal information, including my current medication. She told me I would be contacted by a hospital pharmacist this morning (Monday), and I was. He confirmed that the medication would be delivered to my home today, ready for the first dose this evening. And it has been!
I am delighted that this process has worked well. So just a comment to people not to be an old cynic like me, and to have more confidence in ‘the system!’
Bye for now
