Following information from UK Government and the publication of NICE guidelines, we have updated our advice on the coronavirus for people who have received or are waiting to receive a stem cell transplant to treat their blood cancer or blood disorder.

Has anyone else had an NHS letter recently advising them to ‘shield’? I received one last week. It’s six and a half years since my cord blood donor transplant so this is contrary to the Anthony Nolan guidance and also the advice of my consultant. The letter tells me I shouldn’t leave my house and garden but up
to now I’ve been going for walks although I’ve avoided shops.
