    Hi and welcome,

    I'm afraid we are not medical professionals and we will not be able to advise you regarding this.

    GP's are in the process of sending out 1.5 million letters to the most vulnerable people advising them to self isolate for 12 weeks. If you are in this group then you will receive a letter within the next couple of days.

    Welcome to the community @Gedge As @poppy123456 has said, if you are considered to be someone who is more at risk due to your health conditions, then you should receive a letter. I received mine today. :)

    Hi @Gedge - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining us all. Hopefully you'll hear soon from the NHS if you're considered to be in the 'high risk' category as mentioned above.
    We're all worried, but we will get through this together; this is what this community's about. So, please do post on the forum any time.
