I registered with the government as per advice, well I just received their response and here it is: "corona virus support: you registered as clinically extremely vulnerable, but had not received a letter from the NHS to confirm this. We'll share your details with the NHS.
If the NHS defines you as clinically vulnerable , the NHS will contact you. Your GP will be informed.
If you told us you need help getting food and supplies, but you are not on the clinically extremely vulnerable list we'll share your details with supermakets. They may be able to help. If you need support urgently, please contact your local Authority. "
There you have it. I contacted my GP surgery, they don't know anything about such letter and they were, I got the impression, annoyed when I tried to explain the government's advice. So according to the NHS, the fact that I, and people like me have a terminal disease and at high risk of contracting the virus is not here not there. I'm going to be cynical here, if we all die the government will be better off, no pensions to pay no medical expenses.
I have been unable to get any free slots in the supermarkets to either have food delivered or to click and collect, my 80 year old husband has been scouring the supermarkets to buy food, what a sad state of affairs and isn't even a third world war!!
Well I sign off for now, with a very breathless satisfaction that I got that out of my chest.
Just take care ❤ and don't despair.
