Hi JID, I found this on the Lymphoma Action Site
I have talked with a few folks through Lymphoma Action who have actually received the treatments over the past few weeks. From what I have seen, the completion and processing of the PCR test trigers the next steps for the treatment to kick in. But even although people got the test kit once they put the test into the system they revived a call and were assessed and some did not actually get the treatment as they were not seen as high enough up the at risk list.
Up in Scotland it looks like things are being done differently, lets hope we don't need the treatment.
My understanding is that if I call 119 and ask for priority PCR this will trigger a check using my unique Scottish CHI Patient number that will in turn highlight if we fall in the clinical group that needs the meds.
Yes it looks the same.
I have talked with many blood cancer patents both on this Community and another platform I help out with. The difference between the effect of developing covid during the pre-vaccine period and the now 3 and even 4 vaccines is dramatic with little people now reporting significant effects....... this may play a part in how this develops in the future - time will tell.
