Update to MDS Patients: Registration on the Extremely Vulnerable list is now closed7 Jul. 2020
The service is not open for new registrations at the moment, because people aren’t being advised to shield in most of England from 1 August 2020.
The last boxes of food and basic supplies will be sent out by 31 July.
If you’ve already registered and got priority access to supermarket deliveries, you’ll keep it. Contact your local authority if you need urgent help.
If you live in Leicester and need extra support
If you’re clinically extremely vulnerable to Coronavirus and live in Leicester you should ‘shield’ until you’re told you do not need to. If you’re shielding and need help getting essential supplies, contact Leicester City Council.
If you have MDS – Myelodysplastic Syndromes – and have queries about the changes in the guidelines – call MDS UK on 02077337558 (blood cancer patients only).
Please spare the clinical staff who are overwhelmed with calls and emails.
Advice is: If you have MDS – do follow the guidance for vulnerable people.
Do self-isolate and shielding precautions.
