Hello everyone,
Some of you may have received a text message from NHS Coronavirus Service about ‘shielding’ (staying home for 12 weeks). NHS England wants to ensure no-one at high risk of coronavirus misses its vital health advice. As a result, some patients who are not at high risk have also received that text message. Follow the advice of your own transplant team and check our full up-to-date coronavirus guidance here: www.anthonynolan.org/coronavirus.
