Surely you've answered your own question with what you have wrote

Hi Lizp78, They say never assume! I think you deserve a more helpful reply than the one you've received at the time of me writing this. Let's hope someone here, suitably qualified, can answer your question. I'm certainly one of many, I suspect, wondering if I will be amongst the 1.8 million to receive the NHS 'shielding' letter. keep safe!TC

Don't know answer to your question or what the list signifies ... but here in Spain (under total lock-down) sintrom checks continue as normal (this is equivalent of warfarin). We here in my little Pueblo have been fortunate so far - no cases reported - and when I went for my control I'd never seen the Health Centre so deserted!

Keep safe x

Me too , no g p shielding letter . But I have , plus wear strong poison mask double gloves glasses as Must ship once p w . It is a blood condition . I figured I am medium risk not high . Nevertheless it’s an autoimmune condition ! Treat yourself as high risk , but wear good protectives all

Membranes :- eyes nose mouth, stay hole except shop go early . Get some proof from g p So can go early shopping . Bleach spray door handles post and ALL SHOPPING . Fruit veg plastic . Leave bags outside . Separate yourself from outside front door .

I've never been told this blood disorder or my medication makes me autoimmune , is this correct
