NHS Haematology services during Covid-19 – Update for MDS
NHS services are gradually returning back to some normality.
However it won’t be quite the same as pre-covid times.
We asked the MDS experts to explain what patients may expect in the weeks and months to come.
And – to remind all patients that despite covid, isolation, shielding and perhaps not seeing your usual clinical teams, it is still VERY important to communicate any changes in symptoms to the relevant clinicians.
Teams are there to assist and treat.
It is safe to attend hospital.
There are Covid free zones and hubs set up to ensure all risks are minimised as much as possible.
So – please do not ignore symptoms, do not delay contacting the GP, nurses, haematologist, or A&E if the need arises.
Watch our clip with Prof Bowen explaining what is happening, and what to expect.
Many thanks to Prof Bowen, and all haematology teams across the UK for their great care in such difficult times.
Keep safe, stay well – physically and emotionally!
