Coronavirus

Dear UK person with MS

We are getting a lot of queries regarding coronavirus. Once we have more information we will update you.

At the moment the NHS advice is not to book a GP appointment, attend your GP Practice or local hospital if you’ve visited or travelled through mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, or Thailand and have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath within 2 weeks of returning, or if you have symptoms of cough, fever or shortness of breath after being in contact with someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus. Instead please call NHS 111 instead.

In Northern Ireland, please stay indoors and call the coronavirus 24/7 helpline on 0300 200 7885, even if symptoms are mild.

In Scotland please call your GP practice during GP hours and 111 (NHS24) out of hours. Please be aware that this is an evolving situation. This information is correct as of 17:50 on 7/2/20 and may be subject to change.

Further information available here.

Kind regards

The team at Patient

  • @gnomeicide has a brilliant twitter thread on Coronavirus which he is updating every few hours. Very informative, and cuts through the hype. Would recommend following if you enjoy this blog as it has a similar tone / level.

  • It is known that older people and people with other conditions are at more risk of it being fatal. Does having MS or taking an immune suppressive drug like Tecfidera mean we are at more risk?
