It is very important that patients continue to take their regular medication as prescribed provided they are symptom-free. Not taking medication as prescribed could cause exacerbation or flare-ups of current conditions. We remain in close contact with the NHS and referring centres and at no point should patients who are symptom-free miss doses of medication. If this position changes, we will update patients as soon as possible.
New guidance is available on nhs111 and patients should visit https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19/ for the latest guidance.
Patients who feel unwell, and may have come in contact with the Covid-19 / Coronavirus, or have returned from one of the listed affected areas as per the Department Health and Social Care website should visit https://111.nhs.uk/ or their referring centre (consultant or clinical nurse specialist) for further advice. If patients are considering missing a dose this must be agreed with the referring centre.
However, if you are receiving treatment for cancer and feel unwell, please call 0800 756 7589 where your call will be dealt with by the cancer team.
