I take methotrexate and Benapali(etanercept) and have medication for high blood pressure. I have not received a letter telling me that I am in the "shielding group". My GP is convinced that I am not, as methotrexate isn't on his list for shielding and he has no information about etanercept. His advice is discuss with rheumatology re etanercept. I have received a multi purpose guidance letter from Sheffield Rheumatology Department, sent out to all patients and their helpline will not respond to any calls relating to covid 19. I have self registered on the goverment web site but heard nothing from them. I can not get any slots for food delivery, heard nothing from any supermarket and again today had to go out for my weekly shop to the local supermarket.
Should I be in the shielding group?
If so how can I get round this situation with GP surgery and/ or rheumatology Dept?
Is there a way to check if I am on this national list circulated to supermarkets?
I feel as if I am knocking my head against a brick wall.
